Implementing two new servers
Posted on 2006-05-17
I was wondering of someone could advise me on the best solution for this. We will be installing two brand new DL380 HP servers soon in an existing 2003 domain to replace the two old ones. I need one of these new servers to be the new domain controller and to demote the old one, this is fine and I know how to do this except that they have had problems with the old domain controller with dns.
My question I suppose is should I transfer all across to the new domain controller knowing that there may be a dns issue or should i start from scratch..? Starting from scratch would be a big pain in the arse especially as they have quite alot going on in Group policy and they have 150 users!! What I do not want to do however is to transfer problems over to the new server.
What do you think would be best in this scenario..?
