comment Transfer DNS with nameserver pointed to Office 365
Thanks for the visualization. One last detail: Would netsol tell the Root Server to change my nameserver during the transfer to 1&1?

comment Transfer DNS with nameserver pointed to Office 365
The bottom of the whois command lists off the MSFT nameservers. So long as 1&1 also lists those nameservers, I should have no downtime? I was trying to think of the evil corporation scenario where a request to my domain would come back with a dns error, but the only way for that to happen (once I tell 1&1 to use the MSFT nameservers) would be for netsol to change my nameservers, right? Is it the registrar that tells the DNS resolver which nameserver to use?

comment Transfer DNS with nameserver pointed to Office 365
I'm a little confused over DNS vs nameserver settings. If I run nslookup -type=ns <mydomain.com> I get back (a couple rows like this): ns2.bdm.microsoftonline.com internet address = 157.56.81.41. That means I'm using Microsoft's nameserver, right? On the Microsoft site is where the additional DNS records (MX, A, CNAME) are. Who tells the DNS servers which nameserver to get records from? My registrar?

comment List of Root Hints Empty Windows Server 2008 DNS
I've added the list of root servers from a.root-servers.net. I don't have another DNS server to copy the cache.dns file from. Is there any danger to not having the cache.dns file? Thanks

comment Default Forwarder Windows Server 2008 R2
I was just playing around with the DNS and noticed that my Root Hints list was empty. Is that supposed to be the default?

So I don't need to do anything to take advantage of these "accounts"?

comment Convert local users to AD domain users Windows Server 2008 R2
I've tried resetting multiple machines multiple times and logging in as the domain administrator as well as local administrators and the Copy To is always greyed out. Any idea on what I might be missing? Do I need to run in a special mode?
