Creating a backup domain controller in w2k
Posted on 2003-03-13
I've been assigned a project in where I have to install and create a win2k server with Exchange 2000 server and migrate our exchange 5.5 users and folders.
I wondering how to go about doing this, the current exchange server(5.5) is currently running on a windows NT server and is also our primary domain controller.
I have installed w2k on a new server and i'm in the midsts of installing AD but the problem that I'm running onto is that whenever i choose "additional domain controller for an existing domain" i get a message saying.. 'the domain "abc.com" is not an active directory domain, or an ac domain controller for the domain could not be contacted.
Right now i'm doing this on a test environment where I have a win NT4 server running exchange 5.5 that is also a primary dc.
All I really want to to do is make the w2k a backup dc and migrate all the users/folders from exchange5.5 on winNT and once all has migrated I want to make w2k a primary dc.
