Windows 2003 Domain Controller Promotion
Posted on 2007-09-28
I have two different domains requiring a new DC. The first domain contains:
1 - 2003 Server, AD, DNS, IIS, Exchange
I will be moving this DC to a VM and would like to know the steps. I have read about FSMO and other items such as GC. But how can I ensure these are transfered? What do they do? What other 'hidden' items are there that I need to ensure have been moved?
The second domain contains a 2000 (AD, DNS, Exchange) server which will be replaced also by a 2003 server VM. I understand I will need to run adprep to prepare it for server 2003. What else should I consider?
