Hey everyone. I would like to know if there is a tool that I could use to migrate my Win2000 DNS server setting over to my new Win2008 Server.

One I am done I'd like to be able to use same static IP on the new server.

If it's AD integrated, you just create a 2008 Domain Controller with AD Integrated DNS and it will automatically replicate DNS from the existing server.  It shouldn't be a problem to swap the server's IP addresses once the new server is healthy.
