I am replacing my old Windows 2000 server with a newer Windows 2000 server, but I need to move all the DNS, DHCP, WINS, and FSMO roles/services from the old to the new. I moved the DHCP, WINS, and FSMO roles/services. My DNS server zones are in Active Directory Integrated Primary server instead of a traditional Primary zone. So, I created another DNS server on the newer server with the same matching zones, and I can see them on the new server, i.e. forwarding zones and reverse zones. But when I open the DNS Manager on this newer server, the description in the window still says "Configure the DNS Server". The DNS monitoring tool says OK. I have had the old server shut down since last night and today people logged in OK, mapped drives OK, and surfed OK. Any ideas?

No, I did not demote the old server because in all three (3) of Microsoft's KB articles (816101, 198437, and 323383) this step is not decribed for a Windows 2000 server. Is this what you have done? Thanks for the input...greatly appreciated.

I just dcpromoed the old server, waited one hour, rebooted the new server, but with the same results...When I open DNS it says "Configure the server". But, it is working just fine. Even netdiag -v reports not issues. Wierd, eh? Any ideas? Thanks for any help, greatly appreciated.
