In this post my DNS Server is server1.

If you want view all zones on a DNS server called server1, execute the
dnscmd server1 /enumzones
You can create a record with dnscmd, the fallowing command create a record type A name maykon at contoso.com zone:
dnscmd server1 /recordadd contoso.com maykon A 192.168.5.78
To add an Active Directory-integrated primary zone called contoso.com on
server1, execute the following command:
dnscmd server1m /zoneadd contoso.com /dsprimary
To create a secondary zone called test.com on server1, the IP address 192.168.2.200 is where the primary zone is running:
dnscmd server1 /zoneadd test.com /secondary 192.168.2.200
If you wanna delete a zone called test.com perform the fallowing command:
