Moving server roles from 2003 system to new 2008 Server.
Posted on 2008-06-24
I am in need of moving our Domain controller which also runs, AD, DNS, DHCP to a newer more reliable machine. Currently all of these roles reside on an old desktop computer which just is not cutting it. I ordered a newer server with room to grow and am getting Server 2008 to install.
What is the best way, most straight forward manenr in which to transfer all of the old computers roles to the new server. I know that if I set up a 2003 machine it will automatically pickup AD and most other setting except for DHCP. Are tehre additional tools for this proccess in server 2008?
I am not finding much inthe way querying google for this info.
Any help would be greatly appreciated as I am a Jr. Level admin doing a Sr level job here.
