When you add a windows 2003 R2 as 2nd DC to SBS domain, how does the DNS configure itself on the windows 2003 server?

The current server Windows 2003 server is running as a DC and has dns running on it, after demoting it and then premoting it to the SBS domain will the server have the old DNS configuration or will it reconfigure it so that it matches the domain configuration of the SBS?

It does not do so by default

Assuming you are using AD Integrated DNS, once Active Directory is installed then you can install DNS. You can do this through Add/Remove Programs->Windows Components->Networking Services->DNS.  If you are using Active Directory Integrated DNS then DNS will br replicated from the other DC/DNS.

It will then replicate via the AD replication process

>>> after demoting it and then premoting it to the SBS domain <<<

YOU CANNOT DO THIS

If you really want to attempt to add an SBS server to an existing domain see http://support.microsoft.com/kb/884453

I would NOT recommend it !

Thats OK then :

Best to Demote the 2003 server first and then remove DNS from the Win2003 server first - join it to the domain - point it at the SBS server for its DNS to start with, DCPROMO it into the SBS domain - then add DNS back again

Will it ask me to configure DNS though? I'm entireley sure how to configure it, I usually install it with the defaults...I tried removing it and then reinstalling in a test environment but it didnt remove it properly.
