Have Win2k public DNS set up new Win 2003 DNS need little help/ins

Post by QWRhbSBuZX » Sat, 08 Apr 2006 19:29:48


I have a Win2k public DNS (ns1.domian.com) server set up. I have set up a new
Win 2003 DNS server and would like some help/insight on what is the best way
to migrate or set up the new win 2003 DNS server. It will only run DNS. Is
there an easy way to migrate the forwards, zone's. I am tring to replace the
old win2k DNS with a new win 2003 server.

Thank you.

Make the new server a Secondary for each zone.

Transfer the zones.

Swap the roles, or just make the new one Primary
and remove the old one.

Technically you are SUPPOSED to have AT LEAST TWO
Internet DNS servers for your zone -- this is part of the reason
that most people should leave (or return) their DNS at the
Registrar.

Registrars have lots of fault tolerant hardware with 24/7 support
and usually a nice Web (think GUI) interface where you can still
manage your own records.

If you have a lot of zones, I recommend a script by Dean Wells called
DNSDump that runs from a command prompt. You can download it from
www.reskit.net/scripts and use it to export and import the zones with the
zone files and registry entries.
