Rebuild a DC Server (2003)
I'm considering rebuilding our DC Server over the summer (I will only have a 37 hour week tho).
a) Do you think it's possible in this timeframe and what is the best way of going about it without too much hassle? (RAID 5?)
b) I have another server of the same spec that runs our AV software which could be temporarily promoted but as there will be minimal staff in over the holidays, is this necessary? (No RAID)
c) A lot of apps which run over the network are installed on this server (it was set up this way already). Do you think it's better to have these on a different server?
d) and finally, does anyone know of a step-by-step guide on doing this as I'm bound to forget to back something up, and then remember just as I'm formatting it!! :doh:
Sorry for the amount of info I'm asking but not really confident I can pull this off in a week! :eek:
