DNS zone file is not deleted after domain removal

Applicable to:

  • Plesk 11.5 for Windows

Symptoms

MS DNS is used as default DNS server. When subscription is deleted, dns zone file is not deleted in C:\\windows\\system32\\dns folder.

Cause

This is native logic for MSDNS . You can confirm this by creating zone in MSDNS without Plesk, using only native MSDNS tools in Administrative Tools -> DNS , create Forward Lookup Zone , make sure that zone file is created in C:\\windows\\system32\\dns . After deleting zone in MSDNS administrative console, file will stay in C:\\windows\\system32\\dns folder.

Resolution

You can ignore it or contact Microsoft. Additionally as there is no Zone in MSDNS , it will be not served by MSDNS . File is not removed automatically, but you can delete this file manually if you want.
