Instead, named will query the servers in the root hints list in turn, asking them for the NS records for ".".

Right click on the server, some networks can have listed more DNS Servers, where you want to update the Root Hints to open the context menu and click on Properties.

In the Properties window go to the Root Hints tab and click on Copy from Server.

If you don’t want to do this manually, with Windows Server 2016 and Windows 10 it is possible to script this easily with Power Shell and create a scheduled task for it, see this Tech Net page for more information. I’m Branko, a consultant focused on Microsoft technologies from the Netherlands.
