Old NT4 BDC & new SBS 2003 migration on same network
Posted on 2006-07-24
We have an old NT4 BDC with David Tobit (mail server) installed. This system is going to be migrated over to a new SBS 2003. There is a utility from Tobit for this email database migration. Both the source (old NT) and destination (new SBS) servers have to be up and running.
I am a little concerned about having both the NT4 BDC on the same IP network range as the new SBS 2003. I know that in an SBS network, there can only be 1 DC and that is the SBS. What should I do? Should I demote the old NT4 BDC before I run the migration? Is there a way of temporarily shutting down the BDC services... any further comments. Thanks.
