Can you be a bit more specific ?

You can add a 2008 DC to a 2003 Domain and then transfer stuff like AD, DNS, DHCP etc

What are you trying to do ?

On the station that holds schedule tasks make a network connection to \\server\c$\windows\tasks you can then copy schedule tasks directly into this folder

Scheduled Tasks are kept in C:\Windows\Tasks - just copy and paste them on the new sever.

to change ID/Password - Right Click on the Task | Click Properties fill in the "Run As" box, Click Password and enter the new password.

in 2003, the task was called
SendFiles
when i copied to 2008, it's name is now SenfFiles.job

if i double click on it, it says 'Windows can't open this file....what would you like to do...select a program from the list etc'
