My PDC (Win2K) is located at different city (City A), and now the management what the PDC to be re located to a new city (City B) which have a lot users and critical business process running in the city B servers.
Both city have different network segment and connected thru VPN.
City B right now have BDC of Windows NT 4.0 and Backup DC on Windows 2000.
What steps should I take to move the Primary DC from City A to City B ?
Should I just shutdown and ship over to city B and change the IP address to new Ip at City B ?
or should I upgrade all my servers to Windows 2K and demote the Dc in City A and promote new server as new PDC at City B ?
What about the Active Directory when these happen ?
How long can the Backup DC take over the process if I ship the DC from City A to City B ?
Can I reinstall DC in City B, shutdown the DC in city A and then reinstall Window 2K in City B as Primary DC.
Any link of website that tell in detail of domain migration ?
If this can be done, what are other configuration that should I check ?
