Need help configuring my new 2003 domain
Posted on 2006-07-20
Hello there professionals:
I am new to Windows 2003 Server but have setup 2 of them in the past. I usually just install it in the most simple form, no special features, no VPN or anything fancy, just file and print sharing. So my issues it this.
I currently have a Windows NT 4.0 domain with a PDC runing NT 4.0. I also run one Windows 2003 Server attached to this domain. I want to replace my Windows NT 4.0 server with a Windows 2003 server acting as the PDC and SQL server.
So I installed Windows 2003 Server on teh machine and set it up as the PDC, I kept the domain name and server name teh same so i wouldn't have to reconfigure all the stuff that points to this server by name. I did keep it unplugged from the network so it wouldn't cause an issue with my current network.
What I am wondering is the best way to approach this situation? Is it even possible?
I am sure you guys will need more information so fire away,
thank you in advance for all your help, I love this site.
