Company name change RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,
    Hoping I'm in the right forum...
    A company, let's say fabri.cm, wants to change their public facing name into toso.cm.
    The domain name pre-windows 2000 would remain unchanged: FAB\
    Mails and UPN would be changed to from @frabri.cm to @toso.cm
    There are 3 DC. We need to add a new DNS zone "toso.cm".
    What would be the best option in order not to mangle what is a production environment?
    Both DNS zone would have to coexist for some time...
    A secondary zone is read only which would not be practical...
    A stub zone is limited in its content which would also be problematic...
    Is it OK to create a new primary zone that is AD integrated on the main domain controller (then replicated to the other 2 DC)?
    Or is there a better way to go? And, no, creating a new forest/domain is not an option... And, of course, they want it for yesterday as usual...
    Thanks for the help.

  • Hi Snafu,

    >>What would be the best option in order not to mangle what is a production environment?

    You could create new zone for this DNS zone.

    >>Is it OK to create a new primary zone that is AD integrated on the main domain controller

    It depends on your requirement, and you could configure primary zone on main DC, and add secondary zone on other DCs.

    Best Regards

    John
