replace domain controller
Posted on 2014-09-03
I'm using Windows 2003 standard as DC. I need upgrade our network and make more up-to-date.
I ordered new server with Windows Server 2012 on it.
What is the best practice to switch DCs.
My domain controller is working also as file server, dns and DHCP.
Small network, around 40 users.
I was thinking about working completely separate, recreate users, move scripts, recreate share drives, move data.
When done switch over weekend.
Any comment about this?
Better connect to existing domain and then working on it ?
