NT to AD DNS Strategy
Posted on 2006-07-08
I've got to migrate an NT4 domain to A/D (W2K3). At the moment we use WINS and have single DNS server with BIND as a caching DNS server and some static addresses.
For A/D I'm going to need a dynamic DNS server. I could get BIND to do this, but it seems to me to be simpler to just use the Windows DNS server.
My question is: how should I migrate to this? Do I need to set it up on the PDC prior to upgrading to Win2003? Surely I need everyone pointing to the same DNS server prior to Active Directory?
It's a small network, 1 PDC, 1 BDC, 200 members (NT, 2000 and XP).
Thanks for any advice.
