Migrating 2003 sp2 to 2003 r2 server
Posted on 2007-11-14
I have one server running 2003 sp2 that is the primary domain controller. server 2 is a small terminal server domain controller running 2003 r2. I plan to install 2003 r2 on a third server with the intent of using it as the PDC. Server is much better designed server for fault tollerance (hot swap bays) than server1. Server one also has a multitude of odd problems that reoccur and I would like to get away from.
server one and two are a dells.
I would appreciate any suggestions on how best to proceed with the migration or a reason to not. I also have thoughts of using DFS for a fail over system but the programs on C drive would have to replicate as well as the data on the D drive. We run several small data base programs on server1.
