How do I migrate a 2003 Enterprise Server x64 domain to new IP subnet?
Posted on 2008-10-09
I have a Windows 2003 x64 Server domain with static IP addresses on the (16) servers and a DHCP pool for users, 2 SANs, 3 DCs, 4 DNS servers and a handful of (layer 2) switches. I am required to migrate to a new subnet and need to cause as little downtime on the system and as little interruption to users as possible. I understand that The DHCPEXIM tool will not work in WIN2003 and am particularly concerned about migrating my DCs. Any recommendations on how to perform this migration quickly and efficiently would be greatly appreciated. A description of known problems/pitfalls/common mistakes associated with this type of migration would actually get you added to my Christmas list.
