  • Best method to migrate child domain to different hardware arch

    I've a child domain on IBM svr. It is also host the DNS & DHCP server. The child domain svr is very old & we want to migrate to HP server & retain the computer name. There is also an ADC join to the child domain. What is the best method to do this? My earlier plan is :

    1) Transfer the 3 FSMO domain-wide roles of child domain, DNS & DHCP database to current ADC which will now become the child domain
    2) Demote child domain & remove from network
    3) Create a computer with 1st child domain computer name on HP server
    4) DCpromo the HP svr as ADC
    5) Transfer 3 domain-wide FSMO roles, DNS & DHCP from temporary child domain to HP svr (current ADC)
    6) Ensure replication partner works

    Is there any other better way to do this? OR can you share me your thoughts & steps
