I need to migrate the, DHCP, DNS and files from a windows 2000 server to a windows 2008 standard server.
Through EE and other resources, I have compiled a list of activities that need to occur. I am looking for the following:
1. Is the list below complete?
2. Is the list below in the right order?
3. Is anything missing or unnecessary?
4. About how long should this process take assuming no glitches?
The list of activities as I understand it is:
-Install windows 2008 server on new 32 bit server hardware.
-Join the server to the domain
-Give it a fixed IP
-run adprep /forestprep
-run adprep /domainprep
-promote server to domain controller with dcpromo
-Maike it a Global Catalog Server also
-Transfer the FSMO roles from the old to the new server.
-Run dcpromo on the old server to demote it.
-Install other applications as needed
-Move user files to new server
I have'nt done this before. I am looking for confirmation that I haven't missed anything and that I am doing it in the right order.
