SYMPTOMS
The Notify window in DNS Manager is clipped in the Italian version of Windows Server 2008. The part of the User Interface (UI) in the Notify window that contains the Delete button cannot be accessed. Therefore, you cannot delete the IP address for the Notification Server from the list by clicking the Delete button.
WORKAROUND
To work around this behavior, use one of the following methods.

Method 1

Delete the IP address entry by using the ALT+E keyboard shortcut to the Delete button (This button is called Elimina in Italian). This will delete the Notification Server from the list. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. Click Start, point to Administrative Tools, and then click DNS.

    User Access Control permission If you are prompted for an administrator password or for confirmation, type the password, or click Continue.
  2. In the console tree, click Host name.

    Note Host name represents the host name of the DNS server.
  3. In the console tree, click Forward Lookup Zones.
  4. Under Forward Lookup Zones, right-click the zone that you want, and then click Properties.
  5. Click the Zone Transfers tab.
  6. If Allow zone transfers is not enabled, click to select the check box next to Allow zone transfers, and then click Notify.
  7. Click the server IP address that you want to delete from the list, and then press ALT+E.
  8. Click OK to confirm the changes.

Method 2

Remove the Notification Server by using the Dnscmd.exe command-line tool. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. Click StartStart button , type cmd in the Start Search box, right-click cmd in the Programs list, and then click Run as administrator.

    User Access Control permission If you are prompted for an administrator password or for confirmation, type the password, or click Continue.
  2. At the command prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER.
    Dnscmd.exe <ServerName> /ZoneResetSecondaries <ZoneName> /NotifyList <List of IPs>
    Note In this command, <ServerName> is the name of the DNS server, <ZoneName> is the name of the DNS zone, and <List of IPs> is the space-separated list of the Notification Server IPs. The list of IPs must include the IPs of all the existing Notification Servers, and the list must exclude the IP address for the Notification Server that the user wishes to have removed.
