How to deploy master zones.

If a zone has been assigned the Master deployment role, it is deployed to Windows as a standard primary zone.
Note: A Master zone is not deployed if all of the following conditions are true:
  • The master zone is empty in the Address Manager user interface (it does not contain resource records).
  • The master zone has not been managed (imported or deployed) by the DDW server.
  • The same name master zone already exists on the target Windows server.
  • The existing zone has records (other than SOA and NS records) shown on the MMC console.

To assign a master deployment role:

  1. Click the zone name.
  2. Click the Deployment Roles tab.
  3. Click New, then select DNS Role.
  4. From the Type drop-down menu, select Master.
  5. Under Server Interfaces, click Select Server Interface. The Select Server Interface page opens.
  6. Click the server to which you want to assign the role. The Server Interfaces section opens.
  7. Click the server interface to which you want to assign the role, then click Add.
  8. Click Add to add the deployment role and return to the DNS Zone tab, or click Add Next to add another deployment option.
