  • Ad upgrade/same name???

    Ok I have one AD on Win2k3 St Ed, that I want to replace with a new server that will have Win 2012 St Ed, all patched up and ready to go.

    I have a second AD on Win2k8 St Ed that is currently running in my network, not touching that one at all.

    I want to replace AD1 with the new server, but after I promote the new AD, can and demote AD1, also remove it from my domain. Can I rename the NEW AD, as AD1 and use the same IP???


    any input is appreciated, thanks.

    Yes it's possible, just remember to document/transfer any FSMO roles, or any other services DHCP, DNS, RRAS, ect, which this server offers, take a full backup/snapshot prior to any changes you make.
    If you have the time and resource perform this in a test environment first.

    Please remember to award reputation points if you have received good advice.
    I do tend to think 'outside the box' so others may not always share the same views.

    MCSA+Messaging, CCENT, ICND2 slowly getting around to.
