Users in SBS server do not show up in Active Directory
I have a customer with Windows 2003 Small Business Server. They have outgrown the server and I have recently installed 2 new Windows 2003 Standard Servers and made them domain controllers by running ADPREP on the SBS server. I have two problems currently:
1) The users were setup using the SBS wizard and do not show up in Active Directory. How do I get these users to show up in AD?
2) I wish to decommission the SBS server. Is it possible to demote an SBS server using dcpromo? I haven't tried it yet but know that SBS servers are required to be DC's. I just need this server to go away. It resides on dying hardware. How do I accomplish this?
If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.
