This is using a single DC with W2K3 AD. My management is planning to buy a new server, and ask to me to deploy a W2K8 R2 DC on it. Ultimately, we already want to migrate the AD into W2K8 environment. That means at the end of the project, we have this new server as W2K8 R2 DC, the existing server still a W2K3 secondary DC. Shall I setup this server with w2k8 r2 and then promote it as DC? any forest/domain prepare should I perform?
thanks in advance!
