Also why did the failed over DNS A record not replicate back to Live if it was in the DR DC's AD integrated DNS forward lookup file?

Perhaps that is an issue for my own separate research, it's just when you said i should "configure DNS on failover manually" that had me wondering what you meant, I understood that as manually re-creating new A records for failed over machines which could get messy if not careful.
