Migrate W2k3 DNS to W2k3 R2 DNS

Discussion in 'DNS Server' started by Darren Thorley, Sep 5, 2007.

  1. I am in the process of decomissioning the first DC in our Windows 2003 AD
    domain. I have introduced a new R2 server and made it a domain controller. I
    have migrated the FSMO roles and made it a DC. I now want to migrate the DNS
    to it.

    I may have done a silly thing but as we are running Active Directory
    Integrated DDNS I have installed DNS and verifed that everything has
    replicated across.

    Before I remove the old DNS I have started to go through all the zones and
    noticed that only the old server is listed in our ad zone in the _msdcs
    along with some of the service records (Tapi3Directory, DomainDNSZones,

    Before I remove DNS do I need to manually adjust these records or will they
    be automatically changed when I remove DNS from the old zone?

    Thanks very much for any advice given.
