Dear Experts,

 

We are trying to export out DNS records (A records, etc) from Windows Server 2012. 

 

-Tried using the method/ steps provided in the Data Import Wizard (DIW). Somehow it was unsuccessful. We are unable to see any records when we Parse/Browse the data inside.

 

Could you guys share any steps that you guys use to make the import using DIW successful?

 

Hope for your kind sharing. Really need it for our current deployment.

 

Thanks guys.

Dear @SSieber,

 

We are currently looking at your post. We tried the steps you mentioned, but somehow the import is only partially completed. Not all A records were there after the import although the result is successful.

 

Is there any chance we missed anything?

How do you verify? Probably some A records have been converted to Host records.

Hello Ashraf1987,

 

Could you please detail the steps followed, is the issue for a single zone or multiple zones are affected. Do you see anything by the logs? We can choose multiple methods with DIW to import, so it would be difficult to pinpoint issues without the procedure you have followed.

 

Regards,

Syam.
