Replacing DC in Windows network
Posted on 2006-07-10
Scenario: I have two servers (one is a f/p DC running WinServ2003; the other is also a WinServ2003 acting as a terminal server). I am replacing the f/p DC. Aside from transferring FSMO roles and running dcpromo to make the new server a DC, are there any surprises I should look out for? Ideally I would like to name the new server the same as the current DC. Not sure what the best way to do that is.
