    Hi

    We have a single Windows 2000 server with DFS and are looking to migrate to
    single Windows 2003 R2 with DFS.

    Can someone point me to the Migration Path information?

    Thanks

    Was hoping to bring the new server up with 2003 R2, use the current DFS on
    the Windows 2000 serve to sync the files the new server. Then turn off the
    old server, and upgrade the DFS.

    Mostly looking for an actual migration plan to follow. As current plan is
    open to change.

  4. Was hoping to bring the new server up with 2003 R2, use the current DFS on

    Win 2k and Win 2k3 R2 DFSR is incompatible. Suggest you bring up the new
    server as Win 2k3 R2, upgrade original server to Win 2k3 R2 and set up
    replication to move the files.

    Each member of a WIn 2k3 R2 replication group must be Win 2k3 R2.

    Ran that by a coworker, second plan. old server is a little old for 2003r2.

    Bring up the new server. Copy the files to the new server, remove old dfs
    info, create new dfs info for new server.

    Do the DC’s need to be 2003 R2, or just the schema updates in place?

    Thanks

  6. All you need to do with the DCs is run the schema update on the schema
    master for the domain.
