Hi all,

We have thousands static records(servers and workstations which are not in use) through years. I am brainstorming your ideas on how to clean them up.
Windows 2016 DNS servers
Welcome any idea or script on how to clean up.

Thank you!

    You could consider dnscmd /ageallrecords

    then turn on some scavenging.
