I am going to be creating a Win 2000 server from scratch. Currently we DO NOT have a windows domain, currently users log in via win nt/2000 local and Novell server.

Our DNS/DHCP server is Windows 2000 server.

Our plan is to bring the new win 2000 server up with AD. We just bought a Server (hardware) and are gathering information to proceed.

I was hoping to get some assistance in prep, organizing and implimentation of this project. Any help will be happily accepted.

Is it as easy as just having the workstations authenticate through the new 2000 domain server, or are there a multitude of things i need to do, as in all upgrades I am thinking there is the customary prep work, however since i have never done this before with win 2k, or windows for that matter, I would like some pushes in the right direction.

I have 200 users with 2000/NT 4.0 workstations, about 20 servers with win 2000 and NT4.0 most nt 4.0, i have an AS400, and currently all printing is done via the Novell server as we have 2 file shares on the novell and one big momma on the as400.

Basically I am looking for the users to authenticate via the new 2000 domain, all printing migrated over in time, and some big buy storage on the windows side.

Thanks for your time.
