Forward lookup zone not updating
You can create the standard secondary zone on your Windows Server 2008 DNS server from the command line as well by issuing this command: You can specify multiple IP addresses by separating them with a comma.The File Name value must be the exact file name of the standard primary zone, just the same as when you are creating the zone via the DNS console.Once you verify that the new standard secondary zone is functioning properly, you can decommission the existing primary zone server if you like.You will now need to quickly change the secondary zone into a primary zone.Until Windows 2000 Server and Active Directory entered the scene, DNS was an optional Windows component.
Once DNS is operating properly on the new Windows Server 2008, you can remove it from the older Windows server, if desired.
Also, you cannot directly migrate to an Active Directory-integrated zone when you manually copy the zone data files; Active Directory-integrated zones do not use the standard zone data files that you can copy from one location to another.
If you are currently using standard zones and your long-range goal is to move to Active Directory-integrated zones, you will be able to do so after migrating the zone data using either available method. You first should determine what type of DNS system you are migrating from.
Your available options are: It is recommended that you manually initiate a zone transfer to transfer the zone data from the old server to the new Windows Server 2008 DNS server, as it usually results in fewer errors and is more complete.
If you decide to go ahead and manually copy the zone data files, you need to manually verify the integrity of the zones.Figure A gives you a look at the Name Servers tab on an Active Directory-integrated zone on a server running Windows Server 2008.
