I have a windows 2003 Root CA in a domain. I need to migrate this server to a 2008 R2 server in a different domain.

There is a two-way trust between the two domains. However, I need to migrate the CA server to the other domain and I was wondering what would be the best approach?

If something breaks this can wreak havoc and I have a feeling there is not easy way of doing this. thanks in advance for your feedback

I am pretty sure there is no way to 'migrate' a root CA.  It is locked to the domain name it is associated with when it was implemented.  Your best bet would be to setup the new root CA and start the process of reissuing certificates for your servers from it and just decommission the old one when it isn't needed any longer.

Thanks for the input.

I see...no 'migration' in this situation.

Let me check my other domain to see if there is a 2008 CA already in place..

So this is one of those 1 off's where we basically decom at the very end of the domain's life
