NT4 clients registering in W2k3 Active Directory
Posted on 2004-08-15
I have an NT4 domain that I am migrating over to Active Directory. A pdc and a bdc. Once I do an upgrade of the pdc to server 2003 and then run dcpromo to install Active directory i was wondering when do the computer clients logging into the old nt4 domain register themselves in DNS in Active directory's namespace. I have not upgrading the bdc yet because of an exchange 5.5 migration to exchange 2003 that needs to take place, so the functional level is still mixed mode. I see all the user accounts and computer accounts in Active Directory Users and Computers snapin, but i see nothing in the dns snapin on the upgraded domain controller that now holds the pdc emulator role. I'm guessing that i have to add the old nt4 dns/dhcp box to Active Directory or something.
Any ideas would help...thanks
