Domain Controllers & DNS
Posted on 2014-03-24
I currently have 2 domain controllers. One is physical Server 2008 SP2 and holds all 5 FSMO roles. The other is also Server 2008 SP2 and is virtual.
I just installed Server 2012 R2 domain controller and performed the necessary forestprep, and domainprep functions.
My goal is to move the FSMO roles to the new physical Server 2012 R2 domain controller, and decomission the physical Server 2008 DC.
Regarding DNS - Currently while all 3 DC's are up and running what DNS servers should they be pointing to?
Should their Primary DNS server be themselves and the secondary be the DC holding the FSMO roles? Or should they be pointing primary to FSMO Server and secondary to themselves?
Thank you in advance.
