This step-by-step guide describes how to replace an existing Domain Name System (DNS) infrastructure with a new Windows 2000 DNS infrastructure. This includes installing the Windows 2000-based DNS server and configuring it to perform name resolution and dynamic updates, which allows resources and servers to be centrally located. In addition, zone transfers are used to migrate BIND-based server zones to the Windows 2000-based DNS server. Make sure that the following conditions exist:
- Recommended hardware or software: the computer should be running Windows 2000 Server or Windows 2000 Advanced Server and should be a member server or domain controller in a Windows 2000 domain.
- You must have direct access to the computer console or access through Terminal Services administration.
