Windows Server 2003 AD & DNS migration
Posted on 2011-03-02
I have 3 existing windows 2003 domain controller for my domain.
2 of which have DNS installed on them and 1 of them has the DHCP for the LAN
My question is this
I have now built 2 new Windows servers and i am going to make these domain controllers which is fairy straight forward. however i want to retire the 2 olders servers which hold the DNS.
Do i make my 2 new servers Active Directory servers now using the dns info for the older 2. Then make the 2 new servers DNS servers. Then remove DNS from the older boxes and AD etc.
Because AD is tied in with DNS and DHCP with DNS etc i want to see what the best way is.
I will be creating a new DHCP pool on the new server. DNS entires for the new DHCP will be the new DNS servers.
