How to replace a Windows 2000 PDC with a new Windows 2003 server?
Posted on 2007-10-08
One of our customers currently has an older Windows Server 2000 machine setup as a primary domain controller and several newer server with Windows Server 2003 software acting as domain members with each their individual tasks.
The domain controller is running on old hardware and needs to be replaced.
Now I was wondering if I could promote one of the 2003 machines to a domain controller and make it replicate with the existing 2000 domain? Then I'd like to degrade the 2000 server from its roles and bring it offline.
What are your suggestions?
Thanks in advance....
