Transfer Active Directory (win2k3) accounts onto another domain controller (win2k3)
I had a server running windows nt server with around 60-70 user accounts and various other permissions. I then created a test server and installed windows nt on it as a BDC. Then I disconnected the main windows nt server and promoted the BDC to PDC. Then I upgraded it to windows 2003. That is how I created my test server. It has all the accounts and it working fine but I need to transfer this data acrross to the new super fast server.
My question is how? I know I have to setup the superfast server as an additional domain controller but then how do I upgrade it to a standalone domain controller so I can get rid of my test server?
Or are there any tools that can just copy over active directory and the DNS onto my fast server?
