|I will try to keep this as short and sweet as possible. I have a plan in place to move from 2000 to 2008 using this technique http://social.technet.microsoft.com... I have tested all of this in a lab environment but had a few questions:|
1. I was told that this command http://support.microsoft.com/kb/962... would work on win 2000 when I need to export the DHCP database "c:\w2k3DHCPdb all", but it looks to be a 2003 command?
2. What if our current DC is also a print server? I believe that this obstacle could be a show stopper, after I transfer the FSMO roles and "demote" the old DC I will rename the new DC to what the old DC was, however, how is that going to work if people are printing to a printer located at "DC_OLD" with a server name that now belongs to "DC_NEW"? (I hope that makes sense)? OR.. do I really need to give the new DC the same name as the old?
3. Can I place the 2008 box on the domain (obviously I am not making it a DC at this point and it won't have the same name) before I start Adprep.exe on my 2000 box?
