  • Changing Start of Authority

    I inherited a site from a former employee who had their 3 domain controllers "doing other things" (namely, being a Hyper-V cluster). I have since installed 3 new machines as stand-alone domain controller and want to demote the 3 previous machines (making them member servers).

    I have moved most of the roles to the new primary DC, but am unsure how to move the DNS "start of authority".

    I logged onto the machine (still a DC for now) and started DNS Manager, and looked at the properties for the domain in the Forward Lookup Zone, in the Start of Authority tab.

    In the box for primary server, do I simply put in the name of the new stand-alone DC and hit apply?

    I assume you re using AD Integrated DNS
    If so, just demote, the SOA should reflect the DC you are connecting to:
