In order to keep user accounts and do not need to setup user profile at client computer again, we want to upgrade existing Traditional Chinese 2003 AD to English 2008 AD.
As i know, cross-language upgrade is not supported.
Is there any ways to do it? Third party software or setup a English 2003 DC and then upgrade to 2008 AD?

Thank you.

Wow...  I've never thought about that before.  It's a very interesting problem.

Can you join an English server and make it a DC?  If so, does AD on that English server appear in English?

I'm going to learn something today!!  (and I'm very interested in this problem).

I should add that you need to install the MUI into the new server:

These are for Server 2008 SP2:

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?
