Hello Experts,

I have (what I’m sure is a basic) DNS question.  We have a stand-alone DNS server in our DMZ.  This server is running Windows Server 2003.  I have found instructions on how to migrate the DNS from the old server to the new server.  How can I tell if the old server is the primary DNS server (I’m 98% sure it is as it’s the only DNS server in the DMZ) or a secondary server?

Thanks,
Nick

if you look in dns console, if you click on foward lookup zones on the left, the right side will tell you if it is primary
same goes for reverse zones
