  • Migrate Primary PDC to W2K8 retain IP

    Hello,

    I am currently running my primary domain controller on a 2k3 server. I would like to build a new PDC on a w2k8 R2 server with same IP but different name.

    What is the simplest way to do this?

    Add secondary IP on old one and bind all services (DNS, DHCP etc) to it
    Wait for DNS to update and clients pick up new DNS from DHCP
    Remove old IP
    Build new server
    Assign "old" IP
    DCPROMO, install services etc
    Wait for new server to replicate
    Decommission old server

      pretty much what ossian said.
      I did this for a client about 18 months ago.

      build new server, with new name and new ip address.
      ensure all appropriate servers are online, promote as a DC.
      Transfer master roles (if necessary)
      while out of hours:
      demote old server.
      change ip address on new server.
      re-register dns on the new server.
      ensure that the replication partners are set up properly etc
      should be done.

            cool so its as simple as changing the w2k8 IP to the original 2k3 PDC once decommissioned...

            too easy thanks mate.

              just make sure you re-register dns, and some servers may need to be restarted if you see any issues

                  Eleven years since Server 2000 was released and people are still refereing to NT Server terminology PDC (and BDC ). When will this stop and the correct terminology be used????

                  PDC now only refers to the PDC Emulator that is a role on a DC.

                  And yes, I got out of the wrong effing side of the bed today.
