How easy is to switch the DNS type from Primary to Active Directory Integrated. Has anyone done that without any problems?

Thanks

Changing DNS Type

Please read Technet article "Primary and Active Directory Integrated Zones Differences (Q227844)":

(please remove any spaces)

Personally, I have only ran DNS on Win2K in AD-integrated mode, so I have no experience on if there are any gotchas when you change it.

hope this helps

I have never run into any problems doing this. The only thing that occurs is that instead of the DNS database being stored in a file or files in the Windows directory, now the DNS database exists a part of Active Directory. As long as you aren't having problems with AD at the time you make the change, you should have no problem.

As far as how easy: Open the DNS mmc; click properties for your DNS zone; change type from Primary to AD-integrated; make sure you do this for both the forward-lookup and reverse-lookup zones. AD does the rest in a flash.
