Hi, could someone please explain DNS zones for me? I googled it, read it in my study guide and everything else, but the defenitions are long and very confusing. This is my last test for my MCSA and I am getting stuck early. Thanks!!!
it is an abstract term, i recomend reading about real life examples, if you have never been exposed to this subject before it could take sometime to get the hang of it.
what i used to do when i came accross abstract terms like this (and anyone who did ITIL will know what i mean!) is to ignore and work around them (just replace that term with "Tomatoes"). with time you will eventually get the hang of it. just make sure you know the technical side of it though (how to set it, configure it, troubleshoot it).
this is my method of study and it has been working so far.....
Your time and help as always, is greatly appreciated.

The OP probably needs it all broken down, starting with zones in general.

The above websites are the ones I usually study off, with TechNet being the most comprehensive while the other two usually have screen grabs that wolk you through the installation processes. Hope this helps.

Primary Zones are the original soruce. Like your AD would dynamicly update this one with machines etc.
I believe are used to limit the amount of traffic, and can provide as a fail over incase the Primary has decieded to not want to work.
I think this one is were it really only contains the Primary and Secondary only to identify them (tho I can be wrong)
Any pointers on this would be great though.
edit: I have just thought. Wouldn't a secondary be a conditional forward?

A Secondary Zone is a Read-Only copy of the Primary Zone, which cannot be updated except by Pull Replication from a Primary Zone.
Stub Zones contain only the NS Records for another zone in order to make DNS queries more effiencent. A good example would be creating a Stub Zone on a Child Domain in a Parent Domain.
