Hey guys -
I'm attempting to find clarification on migrating a CA off of my companies 2008R2 CA to a new 2016 CA. I've read a few articles, and some say it can't be done because the server name has to be the same, and some say it can be done. The thing to note is that the 2008R2 DC will stay online after the migration until I can begin creating 2016 GCs.
The article that leaves me to believe this can be done is this one --> https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc742388(WS.10).aspx
The above article has a perfect example "Moving a CA from a domain controller".
This article -> https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee126140(v=ws.10).aspx
makes me believe that the server name has to be the same.
Any suggestions or pointers? If I missed an answered question regarding the same situation, I apologize. I'm fairly new to CA's and the previous tech left no documentation on the current config.
