hi,

on a single domain, install an nt4 bdc, syncronise this server, power down the server and hold this server as a backup system. when something gets wrong with the migration you can use this server for a roll back.
after that migrate the pdc system and than all other bdc's.

The actual steps of installing a Win2K upgrade on a WINNT PDC are pretty simple - put the Win2K CDROM in and follow the on-screen instructions. However, there are a lot of considerations and preparatory things you should do:

1. Make sure to synchronize all of your BDCs before starting the PDC upgrade. Once the PDC is upgraded, you can proceed to upgrade your BDCs and member server(s).
2. Check ALL existing hardware and software on both your PDC and all BDCs carefully for Win2K compatibility BEFORE you start the upgrade. Make sure you have any required BIOS, driver and software update disks that may be required for each server before starting to upgrade. Make sure if any component is incompatible w/Win2K that you replace it first with compatible components. Particularly, if you have older SCSI and RAID controllers in the box, you need to be sure that you can get Win2K drivers or upgrade to newer controllers first.
3. On any machine that has other Microsoft server applications running (i.e., Exchange, Proxy, SQL, etc.), make sure that you have all required service packs and hot fixes installed that are required for the software to run on Win2K.
4. Make sure you have a VIABLE FULL BACKUP of each machine before you attempt to upgrade it.

If you prepare carefully, the actual upgrade process is a piece of cake. All computer and user accounts will be migrated in-place, as well as other services such as DHCP, WINS, etc.

GOOD LUCK!!
