Migrate or Rebuild
Posted on 2009-05-21
I have a Windows 2000 Server. Its working but has recently started to have a few bad days. We have an option to move across to Windows 2003 SBS which I am keen on prgressing but I am not sure the best path to follow.
A few points first:
The server is a 6 year old Dell Power Edge.
There have been a number of DC's on the domain before my time but the have failed at
some point and not been removed from active directory.
Finally for some bizarre reason a previous administrator has created and deleted several domains
e.g mydomain.com, mydomain.mydomain.com, my_domain.com
This has been causing so permission issues on some shared folders as they were shared
at different point of these domains.
So I am looking for some advice on whether to Migrate the domain to the new server or start again from scratch ?
Would it be easy to migrate the user accounts to a new domain and also there desktop setup.... e.g. Application / Outlook settings ?
