Moving servers from one domain to anothe

By Joer ·
We're moving some applications servers from our small NT domain to our large one. Anyone have any "gotchas" I should be aware of?

thanks, Joer

You cannot move BDCs, only member servers.
When changing domains, you'll also need to
reset permissions on any shares,
replace the accounts that any services run under, etc.

I gather that the application servers are stand alone servers and not domain controllers, in which case it is easy to move the servers. Just go to START-PROGRAMS-ADMIN.TOOLS-SERVER MANAGER. Create accounts for the new servers in the domain you are moving to. If your servers are domain controllers, you won't be able to move them into a new domain - NT4.0 does not facilitate this.

Should be straightforward, one problem I have had is an error message something like "you already have a session open", solution, disconnect any mapped network drives, also log of and log on again to break any connections.
