  • Move Roles to new server hold Windows 2000 server

    Hello all

    How to change old server that hold DC in windows 2000 to new server
    I'll tell you about some steps that I took them to do it :
    1- Install windows 2000 and DNS on new server
    2- Install Additional Domain and change DNS to Active Directory
    3- Transfer 3 roles RID,PDC,.. to new server
    4- Transfer schema to new server
    5- Make new server as GC
    6- When I tried to transfer Operation master I can't

    Are these steps right or are there any steps to do that

    Thanks for the help

    Why are you still using Server 2000? -- it is now past end of maintenance life so no more updates

    Steps look OK and if you only have 2 DCs, demoting one should automatically transfer the FSMOs to the other

        Sorry, but that does not make sense

        Could you please explain again what you have now and what you are trying to do
