I need to move my Root CA off of a 2003 R2 Domain controller and onto a 2008 R2 domain member server.
Because the new server has a different name than the old server, I am going to try the steps outlined in this article:
I've read through it and its pretty straightforward. I've backed up the 2003 R2 CA database and exported the registry. I'm at the step where I am to uninstall the CA role from the 2003 server.
HOWEVER, my question is, if I do this during the work day, wouldn't things break? I think the main purpose of the CA in our environment has to do with PEAP / wireless 802.1x authentication which right now 2003 IAS and 2008 NPS can both authenticate and handle these RADIUS requests from our Cisco WLC.
Nowhere do any of these article or even the Microsoft articles state "WARNING: Do this after hours!!!" So what would you do?
