Domain controller 2003 to 2008 upgrade
Posted on 2012-09-19
I have been assigned a project to updgrade DC i.e. 2003 to 2008, now under Active Directory Sites and Services, under servers, there are 4 servers, one of them is at offsite at a disaster recovery site, 3 of them are on site, I am not sure out of 3 servers how many are virtual.
Can anyone kindly help me to go through upgrading of DC from server 2003 to 2008? And a fall back plan if it doesn’t work out?
They are using Symantec backup, and I haven’t worked on this site before, just started today.
is SCCM an option? they dont have it, just thought if it would be helpful?
What should i do about the applications running on the server ?
