We recently had a 3rd party install a VMware solution on two Dell Servers and an MD3200 SAN. The VMWare is ESXi .1 vSphere 4.1
I have to retire the physical server that was providing DNS services to the Cluster now that the deployment of vMWare is complete. It is an SBS2003 box.
1. What areas MUST I go to to change these settings ?
2. In what order Must these take place ?
3. How do I access the areas to make the required changes ?
4. Should I add a Temp DNS Server while this is done ?
One thing that crossed my mind was to powerdown the server to be retired and put in a Linux Installed PC with DNS as a fall back (Needed ??? yes or no, sensible??? yes or no)
I am very green at VMWare and am not confident at all. This is the last step before transferring domain control to the new Windows DC on the server cluster
