Howdy all,
I have read quite a few posts on this site regarding my situation but none that are specific enough to help me exactly.
In Brief.....
I have just taken over as administrator of a windows NT4.0 network with 1 domain and one server DELL Poweredge 2600.
I have upgraded all connected pc clients (10) to windows xp and all connect fine.
I now need to upgrade the server to Windows 2000 and add another new scsi drive to give more staorage space on the machine.
Are there any serious pitfalls or things I should be aware of when runing the installation/Upgrade?
Thanks,
Craig

I know this may not be an option, but if you had another DELL 2600 or other type of server, you could save yourself alot of possible headaches.  The cost of  another server would pay for itself if you had serious problems during the upgrade, or after the upgrade is fine and a few weeks pass and it crashes without having a good backup.

If that's not an option, make sure you have a good backup and all the hardware is compatible with W2K.

Personally, I would add the new scsi first and get it working in NT4, then perform the upgrade.  Again, just a personal opinion.  I'll add more as I think of things.  You should get a lot of feedback from other EE experts on this also.
