NT 4.0 to SBS 2003 migration

By dschwer ·
Hello

I am currently trying to migrate NT4.0 to SBS2003. I am confused on one issue, When I install SBS 2003 on the new server do I assign the same domain as the NT4 box? I was under the impression that SBS can be the only DC on the network in a single domain. I want to be able to use the same user/computer account so I can keep the users desktops. I read Microsofts migration plan but it is vague on the domain name for the new box. Also if anyone has run into some problems that might be of help to me I would appreciate it

Thanks


Dale

You are correct that SBS myst be a single domain. You will not be able to give it the same name as your Windows NT 4.0 existing domain, as this would cause a conflict with NETBios names.

I would recommend that you plan to migrate user account information from the NT 4.0 domain to the new Windows 2003 domain.

This is the document you need....

For those doing win2k/win2ksbs to sbs2003 look at...

Both are big documents but its WELL worth reading the appropriate one fully before starting.

Good luck.
