How to handle DNS when adding a Win3k DC to a Win2k domain

Introducing a Windows2003 server into my Win2k domain.   Have already successfully run adprep/forestprep and adprep/domainprep and promoted the 3k server to a DC.

Would like to know the best way to transfer DNS from the 2k to the 3k server.

The 2k server that DNS currently sits on is a DC and DNS is configured as AD/DNS.

Should I be able to just add the DNS role to my new DC and wait for replication to occur or is there some manual intervention involved?

I ultimately want to decommisson and take out of service the 2k server (old and crusty) but sure would like to have the 3k network solid before making that leap.

thanks

p.s. this is a small single-site network with about 30 users.

Well, I would convert your DNS server to an Active Directory integrated server.  That way, it'll replicate automatically to the Win2K2 server, and all you should have to do is configure DNS on the Win2k3 server and start it.  It should pick it up automatically.
