Windows Server 2008 take domain control
Posted on 2010-11-13
Replacing a windows 2003 standard domain controller with a windows 2008 server that I stood up and made it a member of the domain. Gave it the active directory users role and it has replicated the users/computers. I'm moving the sharepoint services. The only thing left on the windows 2003 server are network policies which we are not concerned with enforcing. What is the easiest way to make the 2008 the domain controller ? Can I just go in to the active directory and promote it? Does this have to be done from the 2008 box or the 2003 box?
