exchange Hardware and retaining drives

By shaybourne ·
Hi Hope someone can help...

I have a networked computer on a win2k domain with a faulty NIC built into the motherboard. I have an identical spare machine wich at one point was on the same domain and intend to swap the hardware but retaining the original machines hard drives. Will this be recognised by the DC as the original machine?

all help appreciated.

Sure... you are saying that you are just going to move the hard drive over to the identical, but working motherboard? Everything will work fine as the hard drive / system will retain it's information.

Even if the motherboard was slightly different, 2000 can adapt itself, load new drivers and still retain the proper information for the domain.

Good luck
