I have a Server 2000 domain DNS XXX.local and i need to upgrade the Server Hardware and the software. So i am putting in a NEW server with Server 2003 std. I have installed the server in a test lab and all is working well.
The problem comes in when i want my existing 130 clients to connect to the Server 2003 domain.
I tested it by using my notebook, the server DHCP and DNS are all exactly the same as my old server 2000 only that it is now Server 2003. but the notebook and a desktop from the old server domain do not connect even though permissions and passwords are still the same.
I had to join back to workgroup and then rejoin the notebook to the server domain, if i have to do this for 130 clients it could take days.
How can they logon to the new server even though all the settings are the same as the old server?
How can i fix my problem with the clients connecting to the new domain?
