I'm currently in the proces of planning a WIndows 2000 domain migratuion form our current Active directory 2000 to WIndows 2003.  Is this a complicated process or diffucult?  What is involved in this?  If I remmebr correctly there are two tools that need to be run to miggrate the domain before you can start adding Windows 2003 or R2 DC's.  DOes anyone know any good resources on this?

It looks like the major steps I have to perform is to run adprep with the forest and domain switches.

Here;s a crazy sceanrio is it possible to do the following:  build a Windows 2003 domain form scratch and copy the existing objects such user accounts, groups, computer accounts and migrate them over to the new clean domain.

I'm concerned with my current domain may be royaly screwed up and instead of trying to resolve these issues it may be easier to start brand new.

If your domain is screwed up migrating to another domain would cause problems while migrating. If you load a new DC then let the object replicate over then you can demote the trouble DC then do a metadata cleanup to remove old lingering objects. What is the current problem with your domain?

Its nothing I can point to with a definate certianty that there is a problem.  The real desire to build a new domain sicne we need to chaneg the doamin name, IP address scheme etc and would perfer to leave our current domain alone and not mess with having to change the domain even though I know its possible with 2003 to accomplish i'v eheard horror stories with it fialing.  I figured a new domain/forest might be our best bet.
