New Windows 2008 Server
Posted on 2009-04-10
Currently, I have a small network. My primary server is 64bit Windows 2003. I need to take this server offline. So, I ran dcpromo and gave another server AD. Now, I have two servers with AD. Before I take my primary server offline, is there something else I need to do so that it is the master?
My eventual goal is to format my primary server and then load Windows 2008 server onto it fresh. I will also be adding more drives with RAID.
What is the best way to transfer AD to a new computer, and remove an old server? (Besides DNS and DHCP).
