SBS 2003 migration but with 2 PDCs
Posted on 2004-08-10
I plan on performing an SBS 2003 migration from our current NT 4 domain but..... I have 2 PDC's (in 2 physical locations). I have read MS's documents on performing a migration with 1 PDC (192.168.1.x) but the other PDC is in a differnet subnet (192.168.2.x).
I am thinking I may need to physically take the new SBS 2003 server from one site, complete the migration (ADMT) and then take the server to the other site and perform the same thing? (at least the 2 locationsa are about 30 minutes from each other).
Is this the best method or could I someone demote one of the NT4 PDC's to a BDC and join the same 192.168.1.x network?
Or if I take the new SBS 2003 server to the second location (192.168.2.x) will I need to change the IP address of the SBS 2003 server?
