Default-First-Site-Name Renamed, can i delete site from DNS ?

    Question

  • Hi, 

    I renamed the Default-Firs-Site-Name with a new name that identify the city of site.

    I look that in _msdcs delegated zone of primary zone, in section sites exist the new-site-name and default-firs-site-name.

    Can i remove it?

  • Hi,
    Based on my test in the lab environment, the old DEFAULT-FIRST-SITE-NAME is aotumatically changed into the new name (default-test), please see:
     
    You could run the following command to restart netlogon service and then re-open DNS manager console to see if the old one is gone.
    net stop Netlogon
    net start Netlogon
    Best regards,
    Wendy

  • Hi

     Agree to Wendy when you rename the site name,records should be automatically updates.As mentioned restart netlogon service and then run "ipconfig /flushdns","ipconfig /resigterdns" then soon restart dns service,check the records updates.

    Note:You should never manually delete anything on a Domain Controller.

  • Did you already set scavenging of stale DNS records on the server? It may be related to out of date site specific SRV records...

    The aging/scavenging is enabled.. but the old record in Default-First-Site-Name won't deleted automatically. I found in other threads that i can delete manually.. right?
