Member Server Promotion
Posted on 2004-08-18
I have a network with an old MS Small Biz server on it and a Win2k member server.
I want to eliminate the Small Biz Server and promote the Member server to a PDC.
I am not worried about account info, i can recreate those.
This is what i was thinking of doing.
Remove member from domain
Turn off (remove) old Small biz server
Promote member to PDC using dcpromo, use name of domain the small biz was in charge of. make it first DC in new forest.
I just want to be sure my procees is ok.
