I have a domain controller currently installed with Server 2008 STD (64bit) and I would very much like to upgrade it to R2. However it may sound easy as pie from here but I have some problems as follows.
- I only have this one domain controller, call it DC1, - got another DC installed with R2 as we speak. However DC1 needs to be upgraded first and it needs to be primary DC.
- I could simply upgrade the installation or reinstall the DC1 from scratch however that will not do I am afraid. Futhermore I don't have the needed 16gb worth of disc space available so the installation stops.
So are there other ways, to upgrade from a 2008 to 2008 R2 without the standard upgrade feature?
I know it's bad planning of me, however you got to start somewhere right?
Looking forward hearing your ideas.
