I have 20 users on a Domain controller (Windows 2003 server standard R2). My company wants me to backup all the data on the DC i.e documents, pdfs etc.... and format it, rename the server to a diffirent domain in AD and configure it properly because whomever was working there before me basicly did a horrible job at setting it up.

My question is this, there is a GPO in place doing document redirection, application redirection etc... on the server currently......

What would be the steps to getting all the computers off the domain without loosing their settings i.e app data etc... Workstations are all running XP Pro W/sp2.



Thanks! :)
