Migrating domain to a new box.
Posted on 2011-02-16
I'm getting a brand new server 2008 box. I currently have one primary domain controller (server 2003) acting as logon server, file server, print server. What is the best way to move everything to the new box and shut down the old box. The last time I did it manually from 2000 to 2003. This involved re-creating all the users, disjoining machines from the old server and joining to the new, and copying files. It was time consuming involved downtime etc...
I know there must be a way to do this automatically. How do I do this....where do I find the documentation, etc....
