We have purchased new servers and Windows server 2012 R2. We currently have DNS server running on Server 2008 R2, and would like to move all the forwards and records to the new server. I found this article already http://socalnetconsulting.com/microsoft-dns-migration , but I want to know if there is a program that can do this? It doesn't matter if it free or paid for we will get it.

is this 2008 R2 server a domain controller?
if so, when you promote the 2012 R2 server to a domain controller it will replicate automatically

It is a domain controller, and the new server is setup as a domain controller now as well. It has replicated the AD but I did not know it replicated the DNS as well?

Yes it does :). So that means if I point all our computers to use this servers IP for DNS it will be the same as before they wont know of any change?
