I have 2 DCs (primary DC = windows 2008) and secondary/backup DC = win 2003.
I would like to migrate the secondary DC to windows 2008 by re-installing windows 2008
I assume the steps are: (i'm using the same hardware)
- decommisioning the secondary DC (windows 2003)
- Install windows 2008
- Install AD, DNS and DHCP
- Transferring FSMO roles from the primary DC.
- Enable Global catalogue
Am i in the right track?
Can i keep the same name and ip address for the secondary DC after i change it to windows 2008?
