I have a W2K Server and want to move to a W2003 Server
Posted on 2008-10-16
I have a Windows 2000 Server running as DHCP, DNS, AD domain controller. I want to move to a new 2003 Server. Can I connect the new server to the domain, do a replication to the new server and then, promote the new server to a DC and somehow tell it to start providing DHCP addresses, AD and all, and have everything work or are there issues I should be aware of and problems making this work? I am ultimately going to shut off the old server. Do I need to upgrade the old server to 2003 first, before I do anything else?
