Migrating from 2000 Advanced server to 2003 server

By sdamer ·
I have been doing my research on this, but I still haven't come up with a definite and safe upgrade plan.

We currently have a Windows domain governed by a Windows 2000 Advanced server. This server is the active directory, DNS, DHCP and file server for this domain. We want to replace this server with a new server with Windows 2003 server.

I have successfully made the new server a co-domain controller of this domain and have active directory running with no problem. However, I am quite lost in getting all the files from the old server to replicate in to the new server and letting the new server to take control of the cluster.

I found out that MS file migration tool doesn't work within the same domain.

So what are the possible methods to replicate files from the old server to the new server and to let the new server take control of the cluster?

Thanks for any input!
