I want to crash the windows 2003 server - Roles are DC and DNS

By SP-Admin ·
I want to format the windows 2003 and install the windows 2003 server. The server roles are Domain controller and DNS server (Single Domain).
What are the steps I need to follow the same domain, DNS up and running after the new server installation?

I have one idea
Is it correct?
Install Additional DC and transfer all FSMO roles to Additional dc, create secondary DNS.
Then what to do?...........

I'd say :
First install dns then dcpromo the 2nd server, wait for replication has finished.
transfer all roles. Dcpromo on the 1st to rmove dc roles.
At this point it's just a member server which you can format and reinstall.

Change DNS Servers

Don't forget to change the DNS servers used to point to the new DC.

Microsoft has a very thorough article on this at:
