    There really isn't a way for individual records. What are you missing? The active ones should come back (reregister) sometime in the next 24 hours.

    Many times single or multiple host A records go missing. Performing authoritative restore or registering the records is not feasible option always. Hence wanted to know if individual DNS records are getting restored as AD objects from recycle bin ?
    Note : We don't have DNS scavenging enabled.

    individual DNS records are getting restored as AD objects from recycle bin ?

    The only possibility would be to restore a zone.

    Many times single or multiple host A records go missing

    May need to setup some auditing.

    Hello Patrick, Good to what i am aware, system state backup includes AD integrated dns which stored in Active directory partitions.
