We are repurposing our 2220s in our lab into production and deplying 820s in the lab. All physical. There's a huge descrpeancy in the number of objects each can hold, so we need to reduce our capacity. There's a test.mycompany.com zone I would like to keep, but there are several other zones that will push us over the much lower object count. Is there a way to only sync test.mycompany.com without first syncing everything?

Object count is a 'soft level'. Nothing stops working, you just get alerts and you you will find that performance starts to degrade as you do things like increase the query rate or the DB capacity.
If this is just for the lab, and you don't care about testing performance, you should be fine (I've loaded a GM to 700% capacity and still been able to use it).
Now to answer you question, from the admin guide:
You can enable and disable synchronization for a DNS zone that is assigned to a Microsoft server....When you disable the synchronization for a DNS zone, the NIOS appliance stops synchronizing data with the zone but it does not disable the zone.
1. From the Data Management tab, select the DNS tab -> Zones tab -> zone
check box, and then click the Edit icon.
2. In the Authoritative Zone editor, click Name Servers.
3. Disable Zone Synchronization: Select this to disable zone
synchronization for the selected zone. Zone synchronization is enabled
when you clear the check box.
4. Save the configuration.

We do care about performance for the upcoming testing (very high priority project), though we could load it back up later on for alternate testing where performance may not matter.
We have a ton of reverse zones, so we would have to script disabling sync at the zone level and then deleting entries in the disabled zones. I was hoping there was a way to only sync a specific zone before starting the sync, instead of having to do a ton of cleanup after the sync.
Thanks for the information!!

Just keep in mind that working with views takes a little extra care and planning but may be what this situation calls for.

Thanks! That sounds like a good alternative!! We're starting to make more use oif views, so it will be a good learning opportunity forour team as well.
