I currently have a Windows 2000 Active Directory and Domain. I want to move to 2008 but I believe I have to go to 2003 first.
I thought the best way to start was to add the 2003 server as a domain controller in the existing forest.
Run adprep forestprep to bring the domain to 2003 functionality
I've seen several article, including on here. Apparently, if I just want to add a 2003 server as a domain controller I run dcpromo. But then I'm still at 2000 AD level.
Since the goal is to move to 2003, then 2008, should I just run adprep and forestprep on the win2k domain controller and then use dcpromo on 2003? Or should I just run dcpromo on the 2003 server and then use adprep and forestprep on the windows 2000 server?
What's the best way to do this? Thanks.
update: do you think this would work with going from 2000 to 2008?
