Is it possible to set up a new Windows 2003 Domain Controller on a Windows 2000 Active Directory? I need to know on how to set up a new Windows Server 2003 R2 on a Windows 2003 AD DC. And what was the requisition on setting up an AD to a new server?
Set up Active Directory to a new server
For sure you can set up a new domain controller on a windows 2000 active directory. Some of the things that you will require to check before you start installing the active directory of the Windows Server are as follows:
First you will need to have Windows Server 2000 already installed on the computer.
And then make sure that you have administrative privilege on the system that you are using.
You should have the capability to reboot the system any time.
And also make sure that you have got an NTFS partition with enough free space
With all that set, you must note the following:
In case this is the first time you are installing active directory on Windows Server 2000, then you have to make sure that it is a global catalog server and not a RODC.
You will need to have NT domain controllers on your network.
Once you have verified that you can proceed with the installation procedure. Access the following link for a step by step guide:
