Help promoting server 2008 R2 DC to primary
Posted on 2011-09-06
I have inherited a nightmare of an IT department. I am used to setting up a new infrastructure, but not adding to an existing one. Currently, the Domain Controllers are Server 2003. I am in the process of introducing Domain Controllers running Server 2008 R2. I have installed the first server and it seems to have gone well. It is also has the global catalog running on it. What else do I need to do so that I can make it the PDC?
I need to do this soon as the server 2003 PDC is showing signs of being on its last leg...
Oh and the previous admin installed the ERP system on this 2003 Server which is complicating things and making me nervous about demoting it until the ERP company can come out and transfer the data to a new server
