    currently at central site have 2 servers for root forest of 2003 ad - both run AD integrated dns zone for parent
    each points to each other as primary and then themselves as secondary address

    i have a seperate child domain at a seperate physical site - again these are setup similar way and these forward to the parents above - the dns is delegated from above zone

    i' m going to put another domain into this tree/forest what ever you want to call it - this will be upgraded from nt4 pdc and then the upgraded pdc will be removed when new dc's put in . there will be 2 servers at the same location as the root servers as this is the central point

    what is best way to install the dns for this
    install it on the pdc during the upgrade and then install dns on the 2 servers that will replace this - and just let the AD replicate the zone and then delegate from above

    or if during upgrade i point it to one of the root servers will it create a seperate child dns zone in this server or ?

    Hi terry712,
    each points to each other as primary and then themselves as secondary address
    Please note that is an improper way to set up DNS. Please review these articles from Daniel and Microsoft as they are very handy and helpful.

    Another helpful article from Microsoft

    If you need additional assistance, please let me know

      Create the zone on the PDC that you will upgrade. Let each domain host its own DNS, that's usually the best option. Don't forget to set the zone to secure updates afterwards.
