promoting a stand alone server to PDC

By chandras ·
Hi
I have 3 servers. A PDC, BDC and a stand alone server. I want to de-comission the PDC and promote the stand alone to PDC. Is there some way i can do this without have to rebuild the standalone server from scratch to become a PDC.

Thanks

I believe that you can only promote a BDC to a PDC. If you want to promote the stand alone, you have to rebuild it as a BDC, synchronize, take PDC offline and promote your new BDC.

There is no way to promote a 'member' server to bdc or pdc status without reinstalling the os and creating it as such from the beginning. One of the many 'security' features of NT.
