Replicate DNS configuration from one 2000 server to another
Posted on 2003-11-24
Hi there, everyone.
Im running a caching-only DNS server on my local network here. The server I'm running it on is having hard disc problems and its on the way out anyway. I have another 2000 server that I can start running DNS on, but I dont want to have to manually duplicate all the entries. I see that the entires are located in C:\winnt\system32\dns , and I tried copying them over, but when I installed DNS services and started it all up, those forward zones don't show up on in new servers DNS forward zones.
Is there a way to just get all these entries transferred over without having to manually re-enter them? Also, Im going to be migrating to active directory (from an NT 4.0) machine, and Im wondering what effect this might have, if any.
