  • migrating Win 2008 R2 AD from virtual to physical

    i plan to migrate a virtual win 2008 r2 AD from vsphere 4.1 to a physical server.

    do i need to install a new win 2008 r2 on that physical server, configure it as secondary AD before decommissioning the virtual AD or there's a better way and tool to do this?

    thanks.

    IMHO easiest way is to add the ADC and then unpromote the main one. FSMOs should move automatically unless you have more DCs -- if you do, move them manually so you know where they end up

    Don't forget other services e.g. DHCP, DNS
