Migrate Windows 2000 PDC to a replacement W2k8 Standard Server
Posted on 2009-03-31
I'm sure this has been asked a million times, but I want to make sure what I'm reading is correct. Currently, I have a Windows 2000 Server that is being replaced with a Windows Server 2008 box, and it will be replacing the Windows 2000 Server PDC and assuming its roles. I want to make sure that my ducks are in a row. We have one Windows 2003 Server BDC. From what I've read so far, it sounds like the 2k8 box needs to first be introduced as a member server to the domain, then promoted to a DC...then, the schema needs to be extended and the roles from the PDC transferred.
Is there a doc or a guide out there that anyone knows of that I'm missing that explains how to do this so I don't miss anything?
