  • Change the primary DC

    We are about to install a Server 2003 Cluster which obviously requires a domain. The two server we want to use for it will be decommissioned once the cluster is up and running. So for the time being we want to use a virtual machine as DC.

    So my question now: Once the two server are decomissioned, can we simply add those two server as additional domain controller in that domain and make one domain controller the primary controller in order to shut down the virtual machine ?

    AD does not have PDCs and BDCs but there are some roles it would be better to switch over first.
