Creating a 2003 Domain Controller in a 2000 Domain
Posted on 2006-11-28
I need to create a secondary domain controller in a domain with a primary controller running 2000. All I have available is a server 2003 box. I've asked previously if there were any hurdles to be expected and got good feedback, but now I'm having trouble getting rolling. Technet docs say that there's 2 ways to create a secondary. One is by replicating the data over the network (suggested for 2000) and the other is by system state backup (suggested for 2003). Since I'm moving data from a 2000 server to a 2003 server, how do I proceed? Can a 2000 server accept data from a 2000 backup? MS says no, but I want a second opinion.
