migrate DNS from Windows 2000 to AD integrated Windows 2003
Posted on 2006-07-07
I have DNS running on two Windows 2000 servers, one primary and one secondary. Each of these Windows 2000 servers is a AD domain controller; but DNS is not running as AD integreated.
I have added a new Windows 2003 server as a AD domain controller, and would now like to migrate DNS to this new 2003 domain controller and make DNS AD integrated. Once I have that working I will also be adding a 2nd Windows 2003 DNS AD domain controller and add DNS to that server.
1. Could someone please provide me with the steps to setup/add the Windows 2003 server into DNS, AD integrate DNS, and then remove DNS from the two Windows 2000 servers?
2. Also, how will this impact current Windows clients and Exchange mail traffic, etc.? I need to be able to make this transition without bringing down the corporate LAN for a whole day.
