Windows NT server and 2000 server AD

By Ciscodude ·
I have just installed a new Windows 2000 domain/AD server. I want to rebuild one of my old NT servers as an NT 4.0 Server in the same domain as the Windows 2000 server. What server type should I make the NT server? Any other
issues? I want to usethe user info from the 2000 server and build NT from scratch. Thanks for reply.

Windows NT server and 2000 server AD

by hberkhoff In reply to Windows NT server and 200 ...

There is only one simple option to install your old server in the new environment/domain.

Make it a MEMBER SERVER.

Why not a PDC:Because you then would have to manage two domains and have a trust relationship. To much administration.

Why not a BDC:Because you would have needed an up and running PDC to install this one.

So that leaves only the MEMBER SERVER. This works always. You can put the member server in the Win2k domain.

But remember:If you need any group policy's activatedon your NT4 member server, the will not work from AD. WinNT4 works with policy's and not the AD Group Policy's. So if you want any policy's active, you will need the POLEDIT application to make a policy template.

The 2nd answer will have no use (installing as bdc) since you have a AD.

what do you want to do with the NT server? if it's just a file / application server, then make it a member server in the AD domain. if you want it to act as a domain controller, you can make it a BDC in the AD domain, as long as your AD domain is running in mixed mode.
