I'm trying to get rid of an old Windows 2000 Server that is the DC and DNS server. I added DC and DNS to an existing Windows 2003 Server and it looks like it replicated all the Active Directory data (I see users and machines listed) but when I unplug the old server and login to the network at a workstation I don't get access to the internet, when trying to use the new server as the DNS server, or to local network stuff. DHCP is handled by a SonicWall. I think I may have both DC and DNS server configuration problems. Which do I need to fix first?

You need to update the DNS information on the SonicWall. Also make sure your Windows 2003 primary DNS is pointing to it’s own address instead of the other server’s address.
