Promote 2008 server to Master DC in 2003 forest.

Last Modified: 2012-06-27
Hello thank you for your time and input. Your expertise is greatly valued.

We have 2003 dc. I just added 2008 R2. Added to domain and ran dcpromo (after preparing 2003 first).

Now i need to promote the 2008 R2 to be the master of the domain.
Users do have roaming profiles, not sure if this makes a difference or not. Thought i mention it.

Many thanks in advance.
