Where are the DNS zone files phisically located on Windows Web Server 2008 R2 x64 ? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Where are the DNS zone files (ex.: domain.dns) "phisically" located on Windows Web Server 2008 R2 x64 ?

    People says: %SystemRoot%\System32\DNS\*.dns
    But there is no "DNS" folder in the "System32" folder!

    Can You help me?

    Wow!

    Windows File Browser found it finally, but TotalCommander 7.50a ran as Administrator not show (Hidden+System file attribs are on). Why? :-)

    LOL! Windows Server 2008. No comment! :S


    Thank's again!

    So: Yes, DNS server installed, and works perfectly.

    I created a test domain with test.dns filename.
    Its operating, but I search it all on the HDD, but there isn't nowhere the file. :-)
