DC 2012 and DC 2008
Posted on 2014-10-20
Present configuration: Single domain, 2 DCs (Windows 2008 SP2 32bits, Windows 2008 R2 64bits)
I need to promote a new Windows 2012 R2 server as an additional DC
It will eventually be the primary DC and all FSMO roles will migrate to the Windows 2012 R2 server
Is the procedure to promote the Windows 2012 R2 server the same as promoting a Windows 2008 R2 ?
- ADPREP /forestprep (on any 2008 DC)
- ADPREP /domainprep (on any 2008 DC)
- DCPROMO on the 2012 server
- Transfert 5 FSMO roles to Windows 2012
Or is it a new procedure?
Or something new to do ?
