    Is there a specific reason why you want to install Windows 2000? 2003 would be a better option due to 2000 entering the end of its life cycle.
    1 1 was a racehorse.
    2 2 was 1 2.
    1 1 1 1 race 1 day,
    2 2 1 1 2

        as far as i know you can't "promote" server this way.

        is there any information or services that is critical on your nt4 server that you can't format and re-install windows 2000 server?

        If there isn't anything that you can't live without on the server, you might as well format it and rebuild the server to a windows 2000 member server.

        or you can do some analysis on your current server and perform a stand-in upgrade.

        this lists out a pretty good article. you can modify the steps as it shows how to go from nt4 pdc to win 2k domain. but since you alreayd have a win2k domain and you don't need to this box a win2k dc, then your upgrade is easier and less complicated.

            If i remember correctly UPromote is used solely to promote and demote NT4 servers between PDC's and BDC's.

            More info here:

            Now as for the upgrade try following this:

            Good luck.

              Just an idea and keep in mind I have no Windows 2000 server experience.

              Upgrade NT4 PDC to Windows 2000 and then run DCPROMO and make it a Member Server. Is this possible?
