We have a server 2000 acting as a DC for our 20 user network.  We purchased a 2016 server.

How should we go about eliminating the 2000 server?  I know we cannot migrate...

Cliff... how would I go about this?  Can 2 domains exist on the same network?  

We currently have oldDomain running just fine.  We make 2016 a newDomain AD server.  Each workstation then moves from oldDomain and joins newDomain?

RK... to copy the users data, the old server would then have to be connected back to the network...  this will work?

Hi,

You can take backup of the users data as a first step but don't ever connect back the old server if you give same domain name
