We have a windows 2003 domain controller that is on a homemade box that we went to transfer to a new IBM blade server. We want to maintain the name and share for the controller as if it was the same box. I am trying to find knowedge base atricles on how this should be done. we have two trains of thought
1. Pormote the IBM to a secondary DC than sieze the roles from the promary making it the primary DC. copy all files and folders ( any ideas of how to do this and maintain the shares and permissions). demote the old primary DC to a member server and remove it from the domain.
How could we keep the name of the server
