I'm in the process of replacing one Windows Server 2003 domain controller with another.
I'm using this article as a guide:
How to replace single domain controller in domain with a single domain controller?
The problem is with setting up DNS on the 2nd (replacement) server, which is step 4 in the instructions.
There isn't very much detail given about HOW to set up DNS. And I'm not a DNS expert.
It references two other articles which don't apply to this specific situation - replacing one DC with another. They're more for setting up a new DC, and don't deal with DNS replication issues.
Which probably explains why DNS error 4015 and File Replication NTFRS error 13508 are showing up in the event log....
I've also seen this: http://www.experts-exchange.com/OS/Microsoft_Operating_Systems/Server/Q_23000158.html
. Again, no detail on HOW to set up DNS. i.e. what to answer in the configuration questions. You'd think that everything just happens all by itself. Well.... it isn't.
To get points for this question, the respondent should tell me exactly how to set up DNS on the new (replacement) DC (step 4), so that during the brief time that the two DC's are up together, I get a CLEAN event log. I do not want to proceed further unless the two DC's are cooperating.
And if an event log entry is unavoidable due to the nature of the task, please explain why...
Thanks in advance.
