I have a DC with win2000 server. This DC has got DNS installed which is active directory integrated. This is only DNS on my network and is vital to the client authentication.
I am currently on the process of upgrading to Win 2003 server. I have got a new server which I have installed win2003 server, joined the domain and made it DC as well.
The problem is that i want to demote Win2000 server and take it out of use completely, but DNS is installed on it and can't do it.
In testing environment (troubleshooting same scenario I have got on working environment)I have tried to install DNS on 2003 server but everytime I install DNS it becomes active directory integrated. Then I turn off win2000 server with has got DNS installed, give same IP address to win2003 server but DNS (specially Reverse lookup zone does not register any DC or PC added to the test domain. Also when I log into domain it takes up to 4 minutes to log in.
Therefore can you help me with the steps to take:
1. Install DNS on win2003 server and make it DC-GC
2. Demote win2000 server with DNS on it and take it out of domain
I have tried some steps from Microsoft site but the outcome is not the same as it says on the white paper
Many thanks for any suggestions
