  • Replication is a domain/zone level attribute.

    I do not think you will be able to change it for one specific Record.

    Let us say you are able to do so using some hack in the AD object itself, then the behaviour of DNS server will be unpredictable.

  • Hi Bahman,

    A zone transfer will occur during any of the following scenarios:

    1. when starting the DNS service on the secondary DNS server
    2. When the refresh time expires
    3. When changes are saved to the Primary zone file and there is a Notify list.

    As Kumar mentioned, DNS does not support for a specific record to transfer.

    Best Regards

    John
