Windows Server 2000 and 2003- adding 2012
Posted on 2014-08-28
So I have two servers: 2000 is the domain controller
2003 - just file server
We just got a new server and i need to put 2012 on the new server. I was told I cannot add 2012 until 2000 is the DC.
So I need to get rid of 2000. But to make 2003 the DC, i would need to install Active directory, and it wont let me unless i find 2003 disk.
So what are my options in case i don't find disk?
Can I add server 2008 to the network as is now, then make that the DC, and get rid of 2000. then upgrade to 2012.
Can i upgrade 2003 to 2008, make that the DC, and then add 2012 to the network.
