Hi
We are running two Windows 2016 RODCs in our environment and i've noticed that the RODCs dont have its own Name server(NS) record in forward lookup zone.
The RODCs have SOA and NS records of the writable domain controllers but not its own.
Please advise if it is the right behaviour for RODCs and if not Please advise a solution for this.
Regards,
M

    Hi Mate,
    The ADD option is greyed out on RODC's DNS.
    Did you mean to add it on the Writable DC?
    Thanks,
    M

    Looking further it seems RODCs are not name servers by default.
