Hello Experts

I have a really network that has one domain controller running Win2000 server. I want to add a Win SBS 2012 server to this domain and eventually decommission the Win2000 server.

Can anyone tell me if I can add an MS SBS 2012 server to that domain, have it get the AD info from the Win2K server and then make it a DC in that domain so I can decommission the Win2K server ?.

Just wanting to avoid setting up a new domain and unjoining and then rejoining all of the workstations to the new domain if thats possible.

Thanks in advance
