Installing new 2003 server with 2000 server already in place.
Posted on 2006-06-06
I'm hoping someone can give me either a good reference site or some advice. Here's the scenario: Windows 2000 server already in place, just a one server environment so this box is a PDC, does file/print, etc. It also runs the company's accounting software, but that migration is being handled by another company. What I'd like to do is get the 2003 server in place, transfer all the pertinent user data from the 2000 server...make the 2003 server the PDC. The 2000 server will be removed (after the accounting data is transferred), so I'd like to get as much of the pertinent user info as possible over to it...so when the accounting consultants come onsite, all they have to do is install and configure their software and SQL2000...and make the transition for the users as seamless as possible.
