Adding new 2003 DC to NT 4 Domain
Posted on 2004-09-30
I've been searching thorugh other answers here, nuit still ma notr 100% sure if we can docwhat we want :)
We have an old NT 4 domain. Hardware is old and not really able to to be upgraded to win 2003. We wnat to migrate the NT 4 domain to be an AD domain. The company want to keep the same domain name. So is it possilbe to build the Win2003 Server on a new machine, then use PDC emulator (hope I've understood the purpose of the emulator?) to add it to the existing NT 4 domain, as a domain controller, so we can then get all the accounts, etc migrated to it and then turn off the old NT 4 PDC and then migrate all the other NT 4 machines over in simiiar manner?
Or do we have to create a brand new domain with the new machine and then use another tool to migrate all the account details across from the old to the new domain?
