> So, it would be a Win2kDC, but in a domain with a NT40
Since it is a NT 4.0 BDC which holds no writeable copy of the SAM, it would
be in a domain of it's own.
Upgrading a NT 4.0 domain MUST be done by upgrading the existing PDC first.
The NT 4.0 PDC is the only DC on a NT 4.0 domain that holds a writeable copy
of the SAM. Upgrading *any* *other* server on a NT 4.0 domain to Win 2k will
create a new domain. The SAM is different.
I thought the NT 4.0 domain was "soon-to-be-extinguished"?
If you need to keep the NT 4.0 domain around, pull the NT 4.0 BDC offline,
promote to PDC, it will balk but it can be done, upgrade to Win 2k and AD,
run dcpromo to remove AD and make this a member server, add it to the new
domain. Delete the offline BDC from server manager on the NT domain.
