Looking to help to finalize upgrade process for Active Directory to Windows 2008 R2
Posted on 2011-03-14
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!
