    Migrating to 2008 Domain from 2003

    Hi all,

    I am currently in the process of migrating our current 2003 R2 domain to 2008 I have tested this in a small virtual enviroment and it seemed to go ok......

    Just wondered on your view on this

    If I have all the 5 fsmo roles on 1 virtual server and back that up before the migration. If it went wrong would I be able to power that back on and forcefully remove the other dcs from the domain so that server takes over the domain roles and we will still be on 2003-r2???

    How ever if it does go ok, I will let you know!

    Thanks

    Brett

    ok all,

    I have done the following :-

    adprep /forestprep
    adprep /domainprep
    adprep /domainprep /gprep
    adprep /rodcprep

    And added the 2008 server to the domain ;-)

    All for now seems ok :-D and I am heading home to duck for cover :grin:
