  • We are planning to migrate our 2000 server to 2008 server. Does anyone has this experience? Any difficulties or any special concern we need to take care?

     

    Thanks!

    Sorry for later get back to you.  I found in web site, Windows 2008 supports upgrading from Windows 2000 directly.  But you should apply Windows 2000 SP4 or later.

     

    Steps:-

    • run adprep /forestprep and adprep /domainprep /gpprep (for Windows 2000 only) to extend Active Directory schema
    • in-place upgrade server OS to Windows 2008
    • then the Active Directory Domain Services Installation Wizard begins to promote to Domain Controller

  • What is 2000 server role? e.g. DC, File & Print etc.  The upgrade method is depended on server purposes.

     

    BTW, Windows 2008 supports to upgrade from Windows Server 2003 with SP1 or SP2.  Please refer to "Windows 2008 Upgrade limitations":-

  • The 2000 server serves as DC and File Server. Or is it better if we upgrade to 2003 first, upon successful and stable, upgrade to 2008?

     

    Thanks!
