NT 4 domain to Win2K mixed mode

NT 4 domain to Win2K mixed mode

Post by fshgu » Sun, 28 Nov 2004 05:45:18


Hi, we have NT4 single domain with one PDC and one BDC, I am planing
to migrate to Win2K domain mix mode.

First of all, could I simply turn off the BDC as a backup, and migrate
the PDC server directly to Win2K new domain? how will effect the login
id, domain and password afterwards? Do I need to go to each individual
NT4 workstations to modify their domain information, would the local
profile remain the same for the user?

At this stage, would I assume that I do not need to do anything on the
Exchange 5.5, Terminal server 4 and SQL7 machines? We are not planning
to migrate them at the moment yet.

Thanks in advance,

fshguo.

Hi fshguo,

Thanks for your posting here.

In-Place Upgrade is the most easy way to upgrade NT domain to Windows 2000
domain. All the domain information including user name, password will be
kept after upgrade. It will not affect the clients in the domain.

I have included some documents for your reference:

Upgrading from Windows NT Server 4.0 to Windows Server 2003

Windows NT Server 4.0 Upgrade Guide

As for the questions related to Exchange server and SQL server migration, I
would like to suggest that you submit a new post in the following news
groups:

microsoft.public.exchange.admin
microsoft.public.exchange
microsoft.public.sqlserver.server
microsoft.public.sqlserver

I believe that you will get more specific and detailed suggestions there.

Thank you again for using our newsgroup!

i Bob Qin,

Thanks for the information. However, in regards the Exchange, SQL and
terminal service server, As I mentioned, we have no plan to migrate
them at the moment. So once the domain has been migrated to Win2k from
NT, will they (Exchange 5.5, SQL 7, Terminal 4) function as it used to
without any configuratin? I simply need some confirmation from your
expertise to complete the step files.

Of cause, if I have further information when it comes to migrate the
SQL, Exchange..., I will certainly post to its corresponsed news
groups.

Thanks again,
fshguo.

i fshguo,

Thanks for your reply.

As I I know, Exchange 5.5, SQL 7 and NT 4 Terminal Server all can work in
Windows 2000 domain. As for Exchange 5.5, you may want to associate the
mailbox with the domain user accounts. You can refer to the following
document for more information.
