The domain contains a main office and a branch office.
An Active Directory site exists for each office.
All domain controllers run Windows Server 2012 R2.
The domain contains two domain controllers.
The domain controllers are configured as shown in the following table.
DC1 hosts an Active Directory-integrated zone for contoso.com.
You add the DNS Server server role to DC2.
You discover that the contoso.com DNS zone fails to replicate to DC2.
You verify that the domain, schema, and configuration naming contexts replicate from DC1 to DC2.

The primary tool that you use to manage DNS servers is DNS Manager, the DNS snap-in in Microsoft Management Console (MMC), which appears as DNS in
Administrative Tools on the Start menu.
You can use DNS Manager along with other snapins in MMC, further integrating DNS administration into your total network management. It is also available in
Server Manager on computers with the DNS Server role installed.
You can use DNS Manager to perform the following basic administrative server tasks:
Performing initial configuration of a new DNS server.
Connecting to and managing a local DNS server on the same computer or remote DNS servers on other computers.
Adding and removing forward and reverse lookup zones, as necessary.
Adding, removing, and updating resource records in zones.
Modifying how zones are stored and replicated between servers.
Modifying how servers process queries and handle dynamic updates.
Modifying security for specific zones or resource records.
In addition, you can also use DNS Manager to perform the following tasks:
Perform maintenance on the server.
You can start, stop, pause, or resume the server or manually update server data files.
Monitor the contents of the server cache and, as necessary, clear it.
Tune advanced server options.
Configure and perform aging and scavenging of stale resource records that are stored by the server.
