  • Move NT DNS Zone to Windows 2000

    Can any one help me with this...

    I have two domains, one in NT 4.0 and another in Windows 2000, right now my LAN has the Primary DNS working with the PDC (NT Domain), but I want to migrate all to the DC (2000 Domain), the quiestion is;

    How can I move the DNS Zones in my NT Server to my 2000 Server?

    On your NT 4 DNS server you'll find the DNS zone file under

    %systemroot%\system32\dns

    the file has an extention of .DNS.

    Copy the file to the same location on your new W2K DNS, and create a zone with the same name. When the wizard asks for the zone file name point it to the old file.

    After the zone loads you can disable the old DNS server (or at least remove the zone from it) and point all computers to the new DNS. You can also convert the standard primary zone to AD integrated if the DNS server is also a DC.
