upgrade win 2000 domain to 2003 domain RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    Two way are for upgrade win 2000 domain to 2003 domain after adprep command for domain and forest, adprep/domainprep ,adprep /forestprep.


    1-upgrade the existent dc 2000 to 2003 with win32.exe in 2003 cd.

    2- Join 2003 member server to win 2000 domain with dcpromo and then move all master roles on it and disjoint dc2000 from newly promote domain 2003


    i wonder to know which way is safer ,reliable and easiest way without error and risk .

    Thanks in advance
