Would like to replace the 2000 server (srv1)which is a GC/AD/FSMO and Dns (active directory intergrated as well as other domains) server. We also have one other 2003 server(srv2) which is a GC, I understand the need to dcpromo and make the new one a GC, but have questions:
1. Would like to rename the new server(srv3) to the same as srv1 because that hardware is going away and because of dns, is that a problem?
2. Can I transfer the FSMO roles to the new server before the name change? Thank You.
