    I need to migrate a Server Namespace DFS root from old hardware to new
    hardware. The new hardware will have the exact same server name. Old server
    is W2K EE and new Server is 2k3 EE. After doing some reading, I have come up
    with rough game plan.

    Use NFSUTIL to export a text file of the config on the original server.
    Disjoin original server from domain and delete computer object from AD.
    Join new server to domain with new computer object with the same name as the
    original server.
    Create a new DFS root based on this servers name.
    Use NFSTUIL to import the configuration.

    Am I missing something? Any advice is appreciated.
