  • Question

  • Hi,

    Hope you are doing well in these troubled times

    One more post on this topic, but can't find a exact answer regarding my situation.

    One client want to update to 2019, here is the exact infra :

    Two DC (DC01 has FSMO roles and DC02 is a backup DC with a CA).

    Two DHCP (DHCP01 and DHCP02 in 50/50 load balancing

    A bunch of RDS farms (2 in 2008R2 and 1 in 2019)

    I'd like to keep existing IP Address for the two DCs, but the name will change.

    What would be the best scenario ?

    Scenario 1 :

    - Move CA to another server

    - Prep domain and forest

    - Install and promote a new server (NEW-DC01), put a temporary IP Address

    - demote DC02 and change IP Address

    - Install and promote a new server (NEW-DC02), put DC02 old IP Address

    - Transfer FSMO roles to NEW-DC01

    - demote DC01 and change IP Address

    - Put DC01 old IP Address on NEW-DC01

    Scenario 2 :

    - Move CA to another server

    - Prep domain and forest

    - demote DC02 and change IP Address

    - Install and promote a new server (NEW-DC02), put DC02 old IP Address

    - Transfer FSMO roles to NEW-DC02

    - demote DC01 and change IP Address

    - Install and promote a new server (NEW-DC01), put DC01 old IP Address

    - Transfer FSMO roles to NEW-DC01

    Or if you have a better one, I'm all ears.

    Thanks All.

    Best Regards,

    John.
