dcpromo 2003 DC in a 2003/2008 Domain
Posted on 2010-08-30
Hi, got a question here.
we would like to upgrade our domain from 2003 to 2008. we used to have 2003 DC only, and recently I installed a 2008R2 and made it as a DC as well.
from 'users and computers' I can see both 2003 DC and 2008 DC as a global catalog server.
Now, I would like to demoto the 2003 server and make the 2008 as the only Domain controller.
when I run dcpromo on the 2003 box, I get 'This box indicating this domain controller is the last controller for the domain. However no other AX domain controllers for that domain can be contacted...'
does anyone have the same experience? Thanks.
