Transferring old server to new
Posted on 2006-11-09
Hi I am looking to put in a new server in place of an existing server that has become outdated. I have never done this before but believe I have the steps down. I may be forgetting things though and I am more than willing to listen to any advice you may have.
The new server is already installed with server 2003, and active directory is installed.
The way I understand is that I need to :
1) DCPromo the new server to make it a domain controller
2) Use Ntdsutil to transfer fsmo roles
3) Transfer files needed and reassign shares based on the new computer
Is there anything I am missing or forgetting?
