comment Why does my XP client try to join a domain with the pre-windows 2000 domain name?
@tonyroth I edited it. Yes. I pinged the domain. No host files. No lmhosts either.

comment Why does my XP client try to join a domain with the pre-windows 2000 domain name?
@tonyroth I can ping my domain controllers and the suffix along. I can do nslookup for both. I found several things when I searched correctly with "xp cannot join 2008 domain." Don't know what it was. I am leaning towards the machine though, the client, not the domain.

comment Can a Windows 2000 SP4 Domain Controller authenticate in a WIndows 2008 R2 Domain after I transfer FSMO from 2000 to 2008?
@Cheekaleak Hope it keeps working. The role holder is 2008 R2 now.

I upgraded to 2008 level with adprep. I had no errors. Schema is 2008 R2. Rolls have been transferred to Win2k8.

Then I do not understand. I used adprep on my 2000 DCs. Everything in the schema was moved to 2008 R2. Made the 2k8 DC. Moved roles from 2k to 2k8. Everything is working.

comment Does the Global Catalog Server have to be in the same subnet as the Exchange server?
I have two DCs. I'm just getting rid of one of them. The other is Global Catalog DC but it is in another subnet, same domain though, so I wasn't sure.

comment In Windows 2000 Server SP4 Rollup 1, does a Primary DNS zone automatically get a copy of the master DNS records?
No. One domain. I am just going to promote my member server to a DC. It will configure the DNS for me on the new DC from the First DC in the Forest, which is what I meant by the Forest Root Domain Controller.

Primary is a DNS term. DC is the domain controller. The forest root holds our AD integrated DNS.
