Hi,

We had a windows NT 4.0 network and now we have upgraded it to windows 2000 network which is running in a mixed mode environment. There are only windows NT.40 server which acts as Backup domain controller. I want to remove this NT 4.0 and convert the windows 2000 server to native mode.

I would really appreciate any help on how I would go about this.

Thanks,

Kris

This article explains switching from mixed to native mode pretty well.

It starts with the pro and cons and then finishes with the instructions of how to make the actual change.

As far as your BDC goes you will either need to upgrade it to Windows 2000 or remove it from the network and delete its computer account in Active Directory and DNS.
