Hello all, I have an older Windows 2000 Server which stands alone as our File/Print/Exchange 2000 Server. It is the alpha and omega of the organization. It is now being replaced with a new machine, which will be running Windows 2k3 Standard. I am looking for some tips a little more specific to my scenario of a one to one server replacement.
I see references to tools such as ADPrep, which will prepare Active Directory for the installation of a Windows 2k3 server on my domain, as well as ADMT to migrate my active directory. Are these still valid tools for my needs? Also, in order to migrate AD to the new server, do I need to first join that server to the Domain? This is a big project for me, and I am new to this, so any advice would be very much appreciated.
