Network Redesign

By madroxxx ·
I currently have a network with a PDC running NT 4.0 and our BDC NT 4.0 is the accounting server. I recently found out that our accounting package will run faster if it is a Windows 2000 server as well as being the PDC.

I am now in a quandry about the best way to make this migration happen in a smooth fashion. Also I have never Administered a windows 2000 domain. Any hints or pitfalls I need to avoid would be appriciated.

Install W2K server, join the domain and promote it to PDC or upgrade the NT BDC to W2K and promote it to PDC.

It also might be a good idea to set up a lone system running W2K with the accounting software on it as a test machine, to make sure the software actually does run faster and not cause any other errors along the way...but you already knew that :)

Are you suggesting the vendor would mislead us? Better read the shrink wrap aggreement before we name the vendor.
