Due to operational needs, I am required to upgrade a server, by tossing extra RAM and a couple of SAS disks.
Also, i now need to run Win 2008 R2.
Currently have this server running as the DC with AD, DNS and FISMO roles on a 2003 32 bit.
I have a second machine that will be used for something else (different hardware specs), where I can temporarily transfer the DC settings and data.
Once the OS is reinstalled on the old server, I can import back the AD and DC settings and data to its original one, now running 2008 R2.
Question is - how?
