Enabling scavenging for one zone RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have to DC's running AD integrated DNS and I want to enable DNS scavenging but I had a few questions first.


    I know there are two spots to enable it, one the server and then on the zone. When I right-click the DNS server in DNS manager, and check the advance tab, can I leave "Enable automatic scavenging of stale records" set to the default of 7? The current DHCP lease time is 8 days.


    Then, under the zone properties for which I want to enable the DNS scavenging under the general > aging tab, can I check off the box to "Scavenge stale resource records" as the default of 7 days no-refresh and 7 days refresh?


    Do I need to do that on both DNS servers or just one?
