Can you give me some hints with moving the DNS Master to Linux? The BIND itself works great and gets all of the DNS data from the Win2k server, but how do I tell AD that the DNS server has changed?
Make sure that you are successfully getting all of the entries! There are more than just the host entries. There are lots of service entries, like _ldap etc. To run a test, load the support tools from the Windows 2000 CD onto the domain controllers. Shut down the DNS on the domain controller and configure them to go to the Linux DNS. Open a command prompt, and type IPCONFIG /REGISTERDNS. After about 15 minutes, run the NetDIAG.exe and then the DCDIAG.exe from the Support Tools directory. Check the output for issues with DNS and locating AD services.
