Adding a separate Windows 2000 server to a Windows 2003 Server

Posted on 2009-04-21

I have a Windows Server Standard 2003 at the office. We have an old Windows 2000 Server that was used about a year ago as a backup server on a separate IP Address (another mgmnt company had done this). Here is my question, can I add that 2000 server to my Server Standard 2003 somehow? Use it as a backup, maybe in a sub-domain?

    If you want to make the 2000 Server a DC you must check to see what forest level you are if you are running at Mixed or 2000 Native you can add this server as a DC.

    If you have the forest at those levels you can then add the server as a DC just like you would with a 2003 server by running at DCPROMO.
