    "UPdate Server Data File" just reloads it from disk into RAM

    Delete incorrect A records and either IPCONFIG/RegisterDNS on the source machine or manually create them

        What server OS is it?
        Is it AD integrated DNS?
        What does the DNS event log show?

            Actually no, my ADI DNS does give the option (2008R2) -- I thought that might have been it

              I think, Ad integrated DNS replicates during the process of AD replication. So, you don't need to manually update the data file. That's why this menu is grey out in dnsmgmt console. This is my opinion.
              If you have right solution, don't forget to guide me bro. I am waiting your reply.

                If it works OK, don't worry!
                DNS can be left alone about 99.9% of the time
