    upgrading window 2003 to 2008r2 domain controller serious issue

    AOA
    in my company we have one primary domain controller running on window 2003 (32 bit) . recently we have bought HP new G 7 server and we wanted to shift domain controllers functions to new server . i made that server as backup domain controller then shifted all FSMO which is working fine . The problem is when i turn off my old 2003 server all the naming information on 2008r2 are lost and nothing appears in active directory users and domain. my DNS is configured correctly on both these servers.
    please help me to sort this issue because it is creating lot of problems for me.

    When you say you turned off your old server, do you just mean powered it off to test if the new one would work? It sounds like you need to make the new domain controller a Global Catalogue server. In the AD, go to the Domain Controllers OU, right click and properties of the new one. Click NTDS settings, tick the box to make a Global Catalogue server

    Did you run DCPromo on the old FRDC to which shifts all the FSMO roles to the new DC of did you do it manually?

    Am I right that you have to demote your old server DC to just a member?
    Its been a while since ive done one so might have skipped a whole section out.
