Advice on best way to migrate to Server 2008

  1. Hello Lurker,

    No problem with IPv6, if you don't use it you can also uncheck it under the
    NIC properties.

    Best regards

  2. Hello Lurker,

    Open an elevated command prompt and type dcpromo, then follow the wizard.
    It will prepare for domain services install and then the wizard starts. In
    advanced mode you can configure additional options but for a basic domain
    setup you cna use the normal setup, just check the help for it.

    Best regards

  3. Hello DoD,

    If you need some help for DNS better open your own posting about this. If
    you correctly demote them with dcpromo, after moving the 5 FSMO roles and
    Global catalog to the 2008 DC, then cleanup DNS on the 2008 DNS management
    console. If there old entries remove them by hand from all tabs and lists.
    I assume you have installed DNS on the 2008 DC? Do you run Active Directory
    integrated zones, if not change all zones to it, easier with replication
    and redundancy.

    Also better post to:

    Best regards
