In a couple of weeks I plan on replacing the main DC and need advice.
The domain controller is also a DNS and DHCP server and holds these FSMO roles:
The new server will have a different name but need to keep the same IP. Here is what I'm planning, let me know if it makes sense.
- Change IP on old server
- Bring up new server, change IP
- Promote new server to a DC
- Setup DNS
- Transfer roles to new DC
- Setup DHCP
- Demote old DC
Anything I'm missing or that I should change? Any advice would be appreciated!
