How to configure Stub Zone in DNS- Windows Server 2012 R2

In this article, we’ll talk about the steps to configure Stub Zone in DNS on Server 2012 R2. As we know that Domain Name System is used for name resolution, it resolves the host name to IP address and IP address to host name.

Stub Zone is also a read only copy of Primary DNS server like a secondary. It points to the zone that contains all the resource records required for name resolution. Primarily it contains records like, Start of Authority(SOA), Name Server(NS) and Host(A) records. It saves on bandwidth by not replicating all the data. Unlike secondary, it doesn’t replicate all the data from the primary DNS server.
