DC 2008 R 2 Enterprise replacement
Posted on 2011-03-08
I have a dc 2008 R 2 , which was built and installed , we have the whole network up and running with DNS and DHCP , we found out that the server is to slow , and the ram is no longer available , so we bought a new Server ...
I need to know the safest way to replace teh box with our new one ...
1 do i do a system state backup , then toss the old box and replace with new and restore .. ??
2 do i bring it into the network and add it to the domain and move the fismo roles ??
Only problem with that is all my settings like DNS and so forth , i do have a secondary DC but its not working a 100% due to DNS issues and DHCP .. Otherwise it has everything else ...
