Making a MS 2008 DNS server the authority for a domain
Posted on 2012-04-02
I have an AD domain that originally had one Win 2003 Server as the only DC for the domain. This server also provided DHCP, and Wins services. I want to remove it from the domain as it is starting to fail.
In preparation for this I have a new MS 2008 Server that I have successfully joined to the AD and used DCpromo to make the new 2008 server a Domain controller.
The migration of the DNS and roles also worked fine as part of this process.
I now want to remove the 2003 server from the domain and make the 2008 server the primary authority for one of the domains that it manages the DNS for. At present it thinks the 2003 server is the primary authority for this domain, which is correct.
Can anyone tell me how to go about configuring the 2008 server DNS for that domain so it will act as the primary authority ?.
Thanks heaps in advance
