Keep domain name in upgrade from NT Server to SBS 2003?
Posted on 2005-03-08
I am in the process of upgrading our office from Windows NT 4.0 Server to Windows Small Business Server 2003. If possible, I'd like to avoid visiting each desktop and migrating their profile from the old domain to the new one. Is it possible to keep the same domain name and the same server name? I think this would mean I couldn't do a "migration" using the ADMT but I'm okay with that. I'd rather re-type 20 user accounts than visit 20 desktops!
Oh, by the way, the name of our domain is "FFH" so I'm not sure if that would be a problem. Other SBS 2003 domains I have seen have been more like organziation.office or something like that.
