Thanks for looking at my issue.
I have a primary domain controller using 2k3 server, this server host dhcp dns ad and everything else needed to run a domain enviroment. I have an extra license of 2000 server that I want to build a backup domain controler out of. I know in the new terms their is no BDC and PDC's but I will just call them that since that is how I think of them as. What I'm looking to do it to be able to shut off my 2k3 PDC and have the 2000 server BDC take up the slak. With out having to do anything when the PDC goes down.
I know that after I build the 2k server box I have to dcpromo the box to connect it to ad, but thats about as far as I know how to do. Again my end result here is to be able to turn off the pdc and have network still run with out a hitch.
one other note I have another 2k3 server that host exchange 2k3 so this absolutly has to be working with out a hitch if the PDC goes down.
Thanks in advance.
