Moving Win2K DC between machines on same site
Posted on 2004-10-05
I am going to be moving a DC from one machine to another within an existing domain. Have setup domains, additional controllers, and member servers, but have never decommissioned a machine except during upgrades.
Besides making sure my other DC is updating AD properly, changing all operation master settings to the new server, and reassigning the DNS setting for each machine to point to the new DC, are there any other steps I need to take to ensure all DC features are now using the new DC as the master before I permanently remove the existing DC?
Hope this isn't too easy.
