Domain controller question.
Posts: n/a

My plan is I have single windows 2003 domain controller & I am going to join windows 2008 domain controller as additional domain controller after that If I demote windows 2003 domain controller will my windows 2008 domain controller work fine?

Actually I want all active directory stuff on my windows 2008 server & after that I want do discard my old windows 2003 server.

Please suggest.

Thanks in advance.

In my own opinion, i will suggest to follow this steps:

- install w2k8 server, DCPROMO, DNS ...
- Move FSMO Roles from w2k3 to w2k8 server
- Upgrade mode of AD to W2k8 native
- DCPROMO w2k3 server to remove AD from it

Review AD stills healthy.

Good Luck
