Hello,

I have a 2003x64 domain controller that's currently our CA. I need to migrate this to a new 2008 R2 domain controller. The names will NOT be the same, how can I do this?

Thanks

Microsoft provides a guide to migrating the CA here:

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc742515%28WS.10%29.aspx

It's also available in downloadable whitepaper form here:

Looks like a pretty involved process, which isn't surprising.  I'd recommend carefully reading the parts of the guide that correspond to what you're wanting to do.  And as always, back up everything first.

So a 32 bit CA database is in fact compatible with a 64bit database, or no?

Looks like it.  Scroll down a bit on this page to the "Supported Migrations" table (about 1/3 of the way down):

"x86 to x64" is shown as supported.
