  • Migrate to 2k, Scope ID

    I have a NT4 domain feeding 400 users and 12 servers. Historically (before I was here) the whole domain has a scope id on every machine.

    I know that 2k (and 2.3k) does not like scope id's.

    Any pointers in a good migrate path rather than a big bang of removing all scope id's at once.

    NetBIOS segmentation was never a good idea, so if I were you I'd drop it altogether. Use good switches instead, don't segment your network logically with NetBIOS.

    As for the computer names - well, since all W2K/XP/2003 computers now rely heavily on DNS, it's more than normal to start using well planned FQDN names, this will let you do more sophisticated things than the old NetBIOS segmentation.
