    I am migrating our 2 W2K server running DNS, WINS, and
    DHCP on each to a W2003 servers.
    Does anyone have a "HOW TO" on this process. I'm
    concerned about IP conflicts and the active DHCP clients
    being able to see the network without having to reboot all
    the client PCs.

  2. Hi Jim,

    Thanks for your posting here.

    A direct way to retain them is to in-place upgrade the server to Windows
    Server 2003 directly. Then the information will be upgraded automatically.

    If you want to move these services to another Windows Server 2003 computer,
    please refer t the following steps.

    You can just install DNS service on Windows 2003 server and create
    AD-Integrated Zone, then force replication.
