I've been tasked with the decommission of two DNS/Wins servers in on our old site (site02). I am evaluating the servers currently from site01. The office where these servers live is moving to another site. The new site (site03) has DNS servers in place.
DC01 is mainly a DHCP server for desktops and will be left up until the last user leaves then switched off.
DC02 is complicated as all our servers in site01 point to it statically, I have completed a script to point the servers to the new DNS servers in site03.
I'm concerned about some DNS/WINS dependencies I might have missed, I am going to start running MS network monitor to try and see if there is any DNS requests on the servers.
I've also noted the scavanging was never enabled on DC01 or DC02.
Would clearing out scavanging and enabling help with this investigation into what dependencies use these servers, is there anyway to view the records of querys if I enable scavanging by the default 7 days, and will they be readable i.e. have an ip address or hostname.
