Hi, my domain fails when moving FSMO roles from my server 2000 sp4 DC to a server 2003 r2 DC.  Since it's a mixed environment (server 2000 sp4 and server 2003 r2), is there something special I need to do after I transfer the roles?  My plan is to get rid of ALL of my server 2000 sp4 DC's which is long over due.

My domain works fine with the roles running on the new server.  The failure happens when I reboot the 2003 r2 server with all of the new roles for the first time.  After the reboot, the server has issues logging in (SLOW) and PC's fail to log on the the network (no log on screen).  I have to transfer all of the roles back to the 2000 sp4 server to get things functional again.

THANKS IN ADVANCE.

make sure all dns is done by the new server, not the old anymore...

Thanks for the reply:
Both servers are DNS servers pointing to themselves as primary dns, so does that still matter?  I wouldn't think so but if you do, it's something to consider.  What do you think?  Thanks again.

yes, disable all dns on the old server and point to new server
