The company has a server with windows NT4 server. This is their primary domain and has more roles as well. The company wants a new box to take replace the old one. The only want it to replace the Domain Controller and act as a file server. The other roles it use to play will be take over by other servers.



My question is what is the proper way to get all the information on the NT 4 server or to the new 2k3 server which will take its place.

I know that I will need to make the new 2k3 server a backup domain (which will allow the information to transfer).
Once the information is transfered I will need to take the NT4 off line and let the 2k3 step up as the new Primary domain controller.

I hope I got that part right? If I do, I need to know the step by step procedure to complete this task.
