I have 2 virtual domain controllers. They are both Windows 2008 Server Core boxes. What I am looking to do is replace them with 2 Windows 2008 R2 Full Server domain controllers. I would like to keep the same computer name and IP address that the Server Core boxes had.
Would someone please tell me the specific steps and timing of how this could be done.
I know I will have to use DCPROMO on the new ones...and somehow transfer the roles from the Server Cores to the new ones but I am not sure of how all this is done and the steps and timing.
