I am in the process of installing some mass-management software (sms-like) but until that's in place, a new issue arose which I need to immediately tend to: our DNS server is dying.
As a result, I wanted to put in a 3rd DC/DNS server, add that to all users ip configs, then remove DC2, and re-edit everyone's ip config's to show DNS3 as DNS2.
In more detail:
what I want:
DNS2: Serverb.Bob.com --dying
DNS3: Serverc.Bob.com --new one
Then take out DNS2 by using dcpromo and de-promoting it to nothing, then turning it off.
so I end up with:
DNS2: Serverc.Bob.com --new one
Can I do the above scenario via GPO? If so, how? This question is urgent so I am assigning it 500 points!!
