Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

By copying do you mean migrating to a new domain? There really isn’t enough information to give a good answer. If you have multiple domain controllers in the same domain, you don’t have to copy anything…it’s all done for you.

You can go for LDFIDE or Volume Shadow copy…

    Yes if you mean copy in same domain or even same forest (depending on how you pair DCs with domains) just setup new Domain Controller. Only DCs can run Active Directory objects anyway. Now there is a giant issue when you start talking partitioning things so only part of AD is on some DCs. You need to read at least a score pages to decide what should be done. But if you are "just" merging AD objects from one simple forest to another (two sets of DCs) try the ADMT (Active Directory Migration Tool v3.0). It can move things around within one AD forest too. Though apparently RENAME is suggested for 2003 Active Directory.

Though apparently RENAME is suggested for 2003 Active Directory. In any of these cases you don't want to do this during business hours. It takes a long time for simple changes to propagate even when you force manual AD synchronization. ANd DCs are busy. Also if power goes off...well it is best to do this after Friday night backups during a weekend lull. If that is not possible I hope you have a DC setup that doesn't get hit by many user requests (not on DHCP distributed DNS list, etc) to horse most the requests during your slowest times.
