  • Help in preserving the old data of ADS?

    I have a network of windows 2000. One Domain controller. This domain controller is misbehaving i mean i want to create a new domain controllerm, but i want to preserve all old users and permissions etc. Pls tell me the best possible way as soon as possible so that i can make UP my new DC in the same domain with all existing data and DOWN the existing DC.

    1) Setup a new server
    2) dcpromo it and make it an additional DC in the existing domain.
    3) transfer the FSMO roles to the new server.
    4) decomission hte old DC
    5) make sure metadata is cleaned up after the original DC is dcpromo-ed down.
