I'm planning on doing a NT to 2003 upgrade but I want to test it first. So, I was going to create a new NT4 BDC and replicate it with the PDC. Then remove the new BDC from the live production enviroment so its effectivley in a test lab and test the 2003 upgrade process.
My question is when I remove my new BDC from the production enviroment how do I force it to be a PDC ?
I dont want to modify the live enviroment at this stage.
So, my goal is to have my live enviroment safe with a PDC and a BDC and my test lab with a BDC thats promoted to a PDC so I can run the 2003 upgrade as a test.
