Hello

We currently have 2 Domain Controllers in the firm, DC1 & DC2. I rebuilt DC1 to 2008 at the weekend, so DC2 (2003) has all the FSMO roles and DHCP scopes.

I am wanting to rebuild DC2 to 2008, but don't really want to come in at the weekend. Is there anyway I can do this during the day (Live)? I know that if I turn off one of the DC's then Outlook 2003 will prompt that it cannot connect, and therefore coming out of Outlook and going back in will resolve that problem. Can I force all users to log onto one domain controller?

If it's not doable I will come in this weekend. Your thoughts and opinions on the above would be greatly appreciated it.

Thanks for all your help.
