I have a network running in mixed mode and I'm getting ready to upgrade one of our main Windows 2000 servers (member server).
The servers name is FSHIFT and it's ip address is 10.10.10.243
I have already built and configured the new server.
Can I do the following...
Remove the current server from the domain, shut it down.
Start up the new server with the same name and ip address, add it to the domain so I can test to see if the new server will work properly
If it does, I'm good.... if not I will need to remove the new server from the domain, shut it down and bring the original server back up and re-join it to the domain.
Is this going to be a problem?
Do I need to remove and re-add the servers to the domain? (I'm pretty sure I do... even if they have the same name)
