  • 2003 GC to 2008 SP2 migration question

    Is there any good "how to" lists for single domains/foreset setups that are already 2003 native? Everything I have found thus far makes all kinds of assumptions and is way too confusing. I am looking to migrate our 6+ year old 2003 SP1 GC to 2008 SP2. There are two other 2003 DC's in the forest as well.

    What have you found that is confusing?
    I think the following is pretty comprehensive and covers all the angles: http://blogs.dirteam.com/blogs/sande...rver-2008.aspx

      Here's Microsoft's guide to the process. It's relatively simple and painless, from my experience with it.

        Done it a few times with no issues

        Run ADPrep with the various switches
        Bring in your first 2008 DC and GC
        Transfer FSMOs
        Decommission old DC
        Raise functional level

        As the meerkat says, "simples"

          This is almost exactly what I was after.. A guide! then I figure if I need to pay MSFT to help with whatever I am stuck on its worth it. But now I am WAY less confused.

          thanks again!
