I inheritaed a badly designed system when I joined my current company. The previous I.T guy set up a windows 2000 server (PDC) with active directory on a old pentium 3 server with no raid system no BDC. Now the drive is causing problems and I need to replace the drive/or the whole server. As part of the new setup I also want to upgrade the server to windows 2003.
This is what I was thinking I should do but never having done this I hope some one can give me some advice.
1. Creat a BDC and then promote it to PDC taking the old server offline
2. Update windows 2000 to 2003 Server
The other option I have is
1. Backup the old server and restore to a new server.
2. Update Windows 2000 to 2003 Server
Which option would you take and what should I look out for
