I am planning to perform a migration from NT to win2k3 sbs. Due to limited naming restrictions, I need to use the name of the existing NT serverbox as the new domain name in the new Win2k3 AD. For example:
current NT names are
server name: AB
New AD names will be
new server name: WIN2K3SRVR
preferred domain name: AB.LOCAL
I know you can’t have the same computername/domain names but no where is it mentioned you can’t have the old server name be the new domain name. Just want to be sure this doesn’t haunt the migration somewhere down the line.
