DNS 2003 server after adding it to a Windows 2000 domain
Posted on 2007-11-28
Env: Windows 2000
Two Windows 2000 DC's
Upgraded Schema to add a Windows 2003 R2 DC
I added the Windows 2k3 r2 box, assigned static IP address and DNS server pointing to one of the DNS DC's added DNS protocol from WIndows server and components(not configuration) and promoted it to a 3rd DC.
THe Wizard never asked me if I wanted it to configure DNS for me as I had seen before. However when it came back up I checked the DNS console and there I found the DNS AD integrated was there. So I went to TCP/IP properties and pointed the DNS server IP to itself(best practice). Now when I restart it takes about 15 minutes to come up. If I modify it back to the other DNS servers it comes back right away when I restart.
What am I missing here?
