I have several Domain Controllers. Mostly Server 2008 R2. However, I still have two Domain Controllers with Server 2003 that I want to Demote; I need to keep the DNS after the demotion.
There are still many Static IP Servers pointing to it for DNS resolution as well as other devices. I want to eventually change their settings to the newer 2008 R2 Domain Controllers with DNS. But for now I need these two Server 2003 Domain Controller to serve up DNS until they are all changed.
I can't wait until I get everything moved. I need to demote now and move DNS later.
Step by Step on how I keep my DNS please. After the Demotion I know the DNS will be gone. I'm looking for step by step on how to keep the DNS exactly the same way. I can't have any down time outside the demotion and DNS repair.
