  • Hi Guys,

    Here is my Organization structure.

    We have two sites.


    Site1 has three domain controllers has given below.

    -      DNS
    -      DHCP

    A2.Test.com: Windows 2003 Enterprise R2 SP2 (DC)
    -      DNS

    A3.Test.com: Windows 2003 Enterprise SP2 (DC)


    Site2 has only one domain controller

    A4.Test.com: Windows 2000 advance server SP4 (DC). Other services given below
    -      DNS
    -      DHCP

    I have gone through quite a few documents and Microsoft documents and I would like someone to help me who has done it before.

    1Q: Can I do in place upgrade on A1.Test.com from windows 2000 to Windows 2003 SP2

    2Q: If anyone has done this before? And give me exact procedure for upgrading entire domain to 2003.

    3Q: We are running exchange 2000/2003? Are we going to have any issues during this process?

  • Hi K_REDDY,

    ·         Base on your description,  I think it is little about winform.

    This forum is dedicated to Windows Forms technology. I'm moving this thread from Base "Windows Forms" to "to TechNet forum" .

     Thank you for understanding and supporting.


    Best Regards,

    Vin Jin
