I have an active directory with a parent and child domain. The parent has a
Win2003 Server with DNS and I've just put a new Win2K server into the parent
domain (as a backup). I chose Win2K because in the past, I've had to have a
Win2K server to install Exchange 2000 tools and what-not.
Anyway, I installed DNS on this and ran the "configure this as a DNS server"
wizard, but I'm not so sure that I did everything right. What can I look
for to test that it's actually replicating DNS info and that if my original
dies, it can step in? Is there a white paper or resource anybody can point
me to so that I can see if my new server is fully DNS ready?

Thanks,
Mark

When you installed Win2003 and setup DNS as AD-Integrated, it set it up as a
Win2003 AD-Integrated zone, i.e. in its own application partition. Win2000
doesn't understand this, and can't load the zone. Configure the Win2000 DC
to hold a secondary copy of the Win2003 zone. You'll need to allow zone
transfers in the 2003 zone.

I ran the configuration wizard and chose the option to make it a secondary
zone. I was hoping that this was all that I needed to do? If not, where do
I do this?

Thanks for your help,
Mark

Whip up the properties of the 2003 zone, go to zone transfers. I'd simply
add the IP under only replicate to these servers. (don't worry about the
other AD-Integrated DNS servers, that's taken care of by AD replication).
