I am installing a new SBS 2008 server that will be replacing a SBS 2003 DC that is being retired. I have a Windows 2000 server that is currently attached to the SBS2003 domain with a role of Workstation on Server. It hosts a legacy database that I have to keep running at that current Win 2000 OS level.
I am currently preparing to raise the functional level of the AD directory and forest from Mixed to 2003 to prepare for this migration and have a few, hopefully brief, questions:
Is there any advice on what I might need to look at on the 2000 server to prepare for the AD and forest uplift?
Since this server will not be acting in any type of BDC role with the new SBS 2008 domain, will there be any issues attaching the 2000 server to the domain?
I had reviewed the TechNet article at http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc754209(WS.10).aspx
but the focus seems to be on reconciling 2000 servers that are providing PDC and BDC services.
Any advice will be gratefully received.
