OK so I have installed a new NS... Before that I was using the hosts as nameservers. So this is new to my environmnet. I have succesfully added a DNSonly @aws and I want to be sure Im doing it right before its too late or have a blackout:
1. I configured [email protected] to be standalone
2. Host is Sync Only

The question is... I am unable to see or edit the Zones at DNSOnly [email protected] server, how can I be sure it has the zones saved? How can I check that and be sure its working BEFORE I go to my Registrar and give them my new NS IP.

I will later repeat this for the other NS.

Hello :)

You can access the server via the command line and review the /var/named directory to see if the zones exist. You can also use the "dig" command. EX:

Code:
dig @your-dns-server.com domain.com
Thank you.
