I just transferred the FMSO rules to my new PDC and I want to transfer DNS to the new PDC as well.

I have already done the following:

Install DNS
Create zone, secondary and all of the proper DNS information has populated over to the new PDC. How do I make this PDC the main DNS Server so I can decommission my old pdc?

Are these zones active directory integrated zones? If so, then there is nothing at all to do, wait until it replicates properly and then dcpromo the server. DONE.

Please be sure to check that the new PDC is pointing to itself for DNS and ensure ALL other servers/clients point to the new DNS server.

Go to properties of DNS zone check to see if you have stored DNS in AD if this is checked it is AD integrated.

To change over you would just need to change DHCP server to have the new server's IP address listed as primary. So, if you have a Windows DHCP server then go to scope options to change.

Are you saying that you created a Secondary DNS zone? You shouldn't have to create a secondary zone you should be able to add the AD integrated zone.

Ensure that the DNS zones are active directory integrated by right clicking on the DNS server in the DNS Management interface and expand the server and then in forward lookup zones right click them and select properties. Ensure they are all Active Directory Integrated, if you, you have the option to make them.
