  • Retaining mixed mode using ADMT 3.0

    HI,

    I'm performing migration using ADMT3.0 from windows 2000 to 2003. There are not Windows NT 4.0 PDC/BDC in any of the Domains. There 4 Domain A,B,C, & D.
    Domain A - Forest Root, Domain B - Child of A and C & D are child of B. The objective is to migrate resource from C & D to B and Decomission C & D domains. Here I have few concerns in Domain D the domain-functional level is in "mixed mode" and Domain D has many Files Servers, DFS, Web Servers, Database, NT 4.0 member servers with Sp6.

    Source: Domain C & D and Target: Domain B

    can i successfully complete the below tasks retaining the Domain functional level in "mixed mode" in Domain D.

    1) Without raising the Fucntional Level to native can i successfully migrate Files servers to Domain B retaining all the ACL of the folders and files?
    2) Will DFS function properly with out any ACL errors,
    3) Will the IIS web server in Domain D functional after migrating to Domain B.

    Pls share your views/inputs if you've already done similar implemenatation. thanks!

    Why wouldn't you raise the domain functional level of domain D to Native mode?
    You don't have any Windows NT4 PDC/BDC's so their should be no issue.

      All target domains must be operating at the Windows 2000 native or Windows Server 2003 functional level.
      it is stated there in the UserGuide for ADMT 3

        Though there no NT 4 PDC/BDC I'm concerned about raising the domain functional level to native mode. According to MS the roll back to mix mode from native mode is only by restoring the entire forest from backup.So i'm looking for options to migrate without raising the domain functional level.

          Well the other option is an in-place upgrade.
