  • Windows Server 2008 as secondary DNS

    I'm presently configuring a Server 2008 box for SQL in our office. I've got a SBS 2003 SP2 box as our AD/DNS/DHCP/Exchange server and I'd like to configure this new one as a secondary DNS.

    Could anyone point me to some documentation on how to configure both the SBS 2003 to allow DNS replication and for Server 2008 to pick it up?

    Thanks,
    Ryan

    P.S It seems I've got the TCP Offload(Chimney) issue with this server. I am unsure as to whether to apply the changes to the Hyper-V Server core instance or to the guest VMs? Either way, throughput is sad, sad, sad. 5MB/s on a 100Mbit link that ended up slowing and crawling to 2MB/s by the end of the 2GB transfer (roughly 30 minutes to transfer).

    on the existing server, under 'namesrevers' tab, add the new name server.
    on the existing server, under 'zone transfer' ensure that transers are permitted to only the servers on the name servers tab

    on the new server, create a new secondary zone.
    add the ip address of the current master server.

    it should automatically replicate.

      Thank you. I discovered this last night going through the settings. It's much easier than I anticipated. Some MS configuration is just absurd.
