New Server & Old Server
Posted on 2011-02-21
I have a new server (SERVER10; running Windows 2008SBS) which i am making the new domain controller on my network and will map all my PC's to.
The old server (SERVER02, running Windows 2000 server) is to be kept to keep some files (mainly SQL database stuff).
I want the old server (SERVER02) to continue to be part of my network, however it will obviously no longer be the domain controller, that job will go the new server (SERVER10).
Couple of questions:
1. how do i stop SERVER02 being the domain controller? Is it just case of pressing a button?
2. do i need to do anything on SERVER02 to allow it continue to be part of our network?
3. is there anything else i might need to consider in all this?
The domain name will remain unchanged when we move from one server to another.
