Can I do an in place upgrade of a domain controller?
Posted on 2011-04-25
I know I can upgrade Windows 2003 R2 to Windows 2008 R2, but my question is can I do this on a domain controller which is handling DNS and DHCP functions. This server does not hold any of the FSMO server roles, but it is in a remote office so I want to avoid too much downtime. I am wondering if it will keep the DHCP settings. As I am using Active Directory Intergrated DNS, I think I would be safe there.
