have a 2003 DC/file server that has been moved from one of our other offices ( 10.3 network to our 10.1 network ). I want to remove and change it with a 2012 server.
2012 is currently a member server on 10.1 network and I have backed up files from 2003 server to the 2012 server.
I assume the correct approach on the 2003 DC is to use netdom /add: then change IP address of server, reboot then netdom /makeprimary: .
Then on the 2012 server change it’s name to the old 2003 server name and IP to the old server IPon the 10.1 network. Make it a domain controller.
If I take it to the old office can I just change it’s IP to the 10.3 network or would it be better to leave it a member server and change it to 10.3 network and then make it a domain controller?
