I'm adding a 2008 DNS server to my network.  My plan is to add this new DNS ever and take the other one off-line.  Will the DNS server pick up all the settings, inc root forwarders one I add it as a role?

This is not very clear for me.  Do I install the DNS server first of copy the DNS file across first?

Do I need to manually create the Zones again on the new server or just copy across the DNS folder and restart the service?

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.
