All you DNS geeks out there:

Our PDC is also the DNS Server for the NT domain. We laso have some secondary DNS servers. The Plan is to demote the PDC and reinstall it all together later on So here is the Question:

How to I move to the Master DNS (Zone file) to a diferrent server??

Thank You

Just go to one of your secondary DNS's. Delete a secondary zone (eg

Since the files are the same (, you have created a primary DNS zone.
Go to other DNS's in your network and configure them to replicate from the new primary DNS server.
