Active Directory DNS zone replication scope (for example All Servers in the Domain) cannot be read or set with WMI

When updating our DNS service audit tool we were looking for a way to read the replication scope for an Active Directory integrated zone - for example "All Servers in the Domain" and found that this information isn't available in the standard DNS WMI class MicrosoftDNS_Zone.

This is unfortunately another thing that Microsoft have not exposed on their WMI classes.

There is some good news however - this information is now exposed on Microsoft's new Management Infrastructure (MI) WMI classes - see the property ReplicationScope DnsServerPrimaryZone

This information will be audited and available for DNS servers running Windows Server 2012 and above in XIA Configuration Server v6.
