Hey Selamawi,

Please include the URL to the lecture you are following and describe the expect behavior versus the unexpected behavior you are getting.

Thanks,

You cannot create the same DNS zone twice. This is why you are seeing the error.

I kept getting the error shown on the screenshot when trying to test secondary zone transfer. could you help please?

Greetings,
My suggestions are for you to go back to the Video at time 3:26 and review the following:
You need TWO DNS servers to complete this task.
Your Primary DNS = SVR-US-DNS1
Your Secondary DNS = SVR-US-JD
The goal is to create a copy of money.com from the primary to the secondary for backup purposes.
For this to work you must enable zone transfer on the primary copy of money.com
Yo do this from the primary DNS1. Right-click on money.com, properties, Zone Transfer, Allow Zone transfer.
Just follow the video from there and you should be successful.
Thanks,
Robert
