Hi all,

I've got a Windows 2003 server and I have been trying to integrate Active Directory to Windows 2000 Advance Server (a virtual server) but with no success. As I'm sure you know, the DNS needs to be setup to allow this so went through the DNS wizard to set it up and came across 3 options and one of them was for integration and was greyed out.

Is there any way to get that option to be available so that I can integrate Active Directory to the 2000 Advanced Server operating system??

The operating system is connected to the Internet and pinged successfully.

So your saying you are trying to migrate your existing AD created from a Windows Server 2003 enviroment to a Windows Server 2000 enviroment? Im not sure you can do that for the fact that there are a ton of changes in the AD structure from 2000 to 2003.

The first thing i would try is the Migration Tool from Microsoft here, http://www.microsoft...;DisplayLang=en

Also, when creating your root DNS the 3 options should be Primary, Secondary and Stub. Which one is greyed out?

I had a feelin that migrating AD from 2003 to 2000 might not work. The option greyed out is Stub, the first one at the top of the window.
