Someone tried to replace their two win 2003 DCs with two new win 2008 DCs by replacing them one at a time (demoted win 2003 DC2 and replaced with 2008 DC2, then demoted 2003 DC1 and replaced it with 2008 DC).
Everything looked just fine, until their users started to report DNS failures; AFAIK the DNS records did not propagate from old DCs to the new ones.
At the moment they are recreating DNS records one by one as the users report the failures, but I was wondering if there is a way to recover the DNS data from one of the demoted DCs.
Are there any files they could try to recover and get a list of all the old DNS records?
Off course, no backup was made before replacing the DCs.
