    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 NS@AWS to be standalone
    2. Host is Sync Only

    The question is... I am unable to see or edit the Zones at DNSOnly NS@AWS 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.
