Is this AD Integrated or Standalone DNS?

AD integrated.

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.

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.
