Replace standard/secondary zones with AD integrated

    I came to a site where they have 3 DCs 2 at 1 site and 1 at another
    connected via fiber ethernet.
    They currently have one DC with primary load from file DNS and seconday DNS
    on the other 2 DCs.
    It looks like they tried to convert to AD integrated once and switched back
    to standard load from file.
    Are there any reasons not to use AD integrated?
    What is the best method to convert this site to AD integrated? Should I
    remove the secondary 1st?

    Any ideas welcome

  2. Read inline please.

    I would suspect that if someone did try to switch to ADI and it failed, is
    because the Secondary zone was not deleted first.
    Before you change to ADI, delete all Standard Secondary zones from all DCs
    and leave only one DC with a Standard Primary. Then, you can change the
    remaining Standard Primary to ADI, be patient and wait for it to replicate
    to the other DCs. You can speed up the process by making sure all DCs have
    an NS record in the zone and force a replication.
