Rename Standard Primary DNS Server

Last Modified: 2013-12-28
Hi Team,
I currently have a standalone NT4 Primary DNS server. I want to upgrade it to a Windows 2003 DNS Server and keep it standard primary and not have it AD integrated (We do have a 2003 Native Domain). Along with this I want to keep the new server name and IP the same as the old NT4 DNS server. Doing zone transfers and making the new zones on the new server primary ones is ok, but is it straightforward enough to simply decomission the nt4 server and rename the new dns server?
Thanks in advance everyone
