Upgrading from NT to 2003
Posted on 2005-05-12
I have a brand new server that is going to be my dc in 2003, I am planning on upgrading the domain etc in the following way, I am not a great Windows admin so any suggestions or considerations is what I am looking for or even a better plan.
Created another NT BDC this has synced.
Take the BDC and put it on a private network or vlan, then upgrade that server to 2003 AD etc, then take my new server and install 2003 on this same private lan as the same server as the NT Domain controller, then copy all the files to the new 2k3 server from the NT Domain controller after I rename it.. Setup the print queues on the new 2k3 server. I am sure I am simplifying and missing something.
