  • BDC migration from windows 2000 to windows 2003

    I have a domain controller server (Win 2000 server) and a child domain controller server (Win 2003). I want to migrate domain controller server (Win 2000 server) into new server (Win 2003) that I just bought recently. How can I do this? What's the procedure?
    Thanks in advance

      Are you saying that you have one domain with two DC's (One windows 2000 and the other 2003)?

      If so you must have already run ad /forestprep and ad /domainprep?

      All you need to do is transfer the FSMO roles from the 2000 box to the 2003 (http://www.petri.com/transferring_fsmo_roles.htm) and also make the 2003 box a GC, if it isn't one already (http://www.petri.com/configure_a_new_global_catalog.htm)

      If this is not what your after then please post more info about your set-up

      Thanks

          in a windows 2000 / 2003 environment there is no such thing a PDB and BDC. All domain controllers are equal. There are only FSMO roles that can only be held on only one of your machines (But you can split them across multiple machines) depending on your network topology.

          Just look into transfering the FSMO roles from the 2000 to the 2003 box and also check if it is a GC or not, leave it for a day to replicate and then shutdown the 2000 box to ensure everything is OK. Any problems then switch back on the 2000 box
