Domain transfer

Last Modified: 2013-12-05
I have a win2k domain server, with it being the only domain server in my network. We have just bought an upgraded server running 2008. I have tried running adprep/forestprep with no luck, which you can see by my previous post here. I have tried everything and will not work, with no solution found except a corrupt AD.

I have added the new win2008 server to the domain, and have not run dcpromo, as it will not let me without running addprep/forestprep, which I cannot do. I have noticed on the new domain server that the AD from the old server has replicated over to the new one. I plan on disconnecting the old server, and create a new domain on the new server.

Question: Will the items in AD that replicated over from the old domain server still remain for the new domain? which will allow me not to have to add the names, and items for the new domain.
