Problem while updating AD

Dear All,


I’m in a pilot phase to upgrade my Active Directory from Windows 2003 to Windows 2008 R2. I installed the new windows 2008 R2 domain controllers and thy are ready now. FSMO roles have been moved to the new servers, all DHCP scopes pointing to the new servers.

I need to do a test to make sure everything is working fine with the new domain controller, I want to shut down the old windows 2003 domain controllers but I’m facing issue here,  the DHCP service still running in the old domain controller, so I can’t shut down them!

I’m looking for a way which I can stop all services related to the active directory in those servers, but I can’t list what exactly I have to stop!

Please help.

Thanks

If your DHCP scope has been moved to 2008, then just turn off DHCP on the 2003 domain controller. DHCP is not AD integrated like DNS.  As long as your DHCP service on the 2003 server is not serving clients, you can stop the service and remove active directory from 2003.

Wouldn't it be nice if objects in Active Directory automatically moved into the correct Organizational Units? This is what AutoAD aims to do and as a plus, it automatically creates Sites, Subnets, and Organizational Units.
