I have a business Network with about 40 PC's and two Server 2003 Std both Domain controllers. One (The Club Server) is the PDC.
The Network supports two associated businesses and each server is dedicated to one business and holds all the resorces (Softwar and Folders) for that business.
I need to move the Business's to a new physical location, but in two stages. The Club Server and about 15 PC's now, then in a months time the "Bay server" and the remaining PC's. While the Servers are apart the two businesses must not comunicate and run as completly stand alone Domains / Networks.
Problem is how to extract the Club Server (PDC) which is running all FSMO. If I transfer FSMO to second Server (Bay Server) fine, but what will happen when I install the Club Server at its new Location? How do I reinstall it as PDC for new Network. Need to keep same same Domain name.
When I come to move the Bay Server in a months time I cannot downgrade it from DC as it will be the only server and what will happen when I join it back to the New network with the Club Server PDC
