We just got a new x64 server from Dell and it has W2K8 standard OS. It is brand new, no roles setup yet, and has been added to our domain.
I see the accepted answer in the post, and it seems to be my answer, but I am looking to make sure it is still suggested way.
I need to keep our current Domain Controller (we have only 1) running while I do this.
I need to transfer AD and DNS and DC settings from W2K3 server to new W2k8 server with minimal downtime.
I then plan on removing W2k3 server from the network.
I have a few questions.
1) "Configure machines using static IP to use 2008 DNS"
Is there a quick way of doing this or do I need to go to each machine?
2) ADPREP32. Do I run this using the 2008 CD or is there a tool already for this?
