We currently have two windows 2000 domain controllers, which I will be shortly be upgrading to Windows 2003 server.

After that I want to replace one of the domain controllers with a new machine.....are there any migration tools that can do this (like Novell provides) or is it a case of building a new machine, promoting that to a domain controller, transferring files etc off the old one onto the new, and then decommissioning the old one (using dcpromo).



PS I do not need to upgrade to 2003 first...I just presumed it would be easier.
