Windows Server 2003Active DirectoryDNS
2 Comments1 Solution276 ViewsLast Modified:
We have a domain that has 3 Windows 2003 domain controllers. The main DC has DNS installed which is active directory integrated. I need to remove the main DC from the domain as I will be installing a new DC and moving all DC's to windows 2008. My concern is that if I DCPROMO the main DC it will uninstall the DNS as well and I will lose my DNS. Is there a correct procedure for doing this?
