I have a win2k3 AD Integrated DNS using secure updates. I have a number of
old entries in DNS and would like to turn on aging/scavenging, but when I
try (set to 7/7) I get an error "The data on the primary zone failed to set.
The property is invalid". I am not seeing any errors in the event logs and
dcdiag comes back clean. Any ideas?
