I am swaping out an existing Windows 2000 SBS server with a Windows 2003 Server Standard, and am looking for the easiest way to do it without re-doing everyone's desktop/ application environment.
Can I just make the new server a PDC with the same domain name (off the network), setup user accounts that match exactly, swap the servers and have every workstation reboot?
I need to take the old server out, plus I understand that there are issues with trusts and multiple domain controllers with SBS, so co-existance is not an option.
Any advice would be highly appreciated!
