We currently have a single domain controller in our Windows 2000 SP4 domain. I'm hoping to find out if the following is possible, and if so, how many problems am I likely to encounter in implementing the following:
1. Add a new domain controller running Windows 2003 Small Business Server. This server will also run a new database program that I need to install that requires SQL.
2. Demote the existing Windows 2000 dc to a backup dc without upgrading the operating system. We currently don't have any failsafes in place should our main dc go down, so I'm hoping this could minimize our exposure in this area.
3. The Windows 2000 dc is currently running Terminal Services in application mode. I would like for this to continue unchanged once the migration to the new SBS server is completed.
Any comments or suggestions on this would be greatly appreciated.
