Moving from Windows 2000 Native AD to Windows 2008 AD
Posted on 2013-01-18
Our domain is currently running windows 2000 native mode AD. There are currently four Server 2008 R2 DC's running in the domain, and the last Win2000 DC has been demoted. We have no DC's running server 2003, although there are two member servers running 2003, one as an application server, and one as an exchange server. We also have a new server running Win2012 which will be running exchange 2010 once it's up and running. At that time the current exchange server will be decommissioned.
How do I go about moving from Win2000 native mode to win2008 mode? What "gotcha's" should I watch out for?
Thanks for your time and answers.
