  5. Hello from France,

    As said by Thomasz, it can't be done.

    Why do you want to restore a W2K DC on a W2K3 DC?

    What's you goal?

    Maybe, can we help you, if you explain explicitly what do you want to do ...

    Hi michael ! Actually we run a 2000 Server for the PDC and they just bought
    a new machine who's faster ... really better.. and my boss want to keep the
    keep the same AD and put it on this new server wich is running 2003 server...

    But i've got another question...can i do that : Put my 2003 PDC as a BDC of
    the 2000 PDC so it replicate the AD on it so i won't loose anything !!

    thx again guy's.
