Help!!! i have a complex home network which is simillar to corperation or a school network setup with a domain and such. and i am building a newer computer to act as my server.

this server is my NAT server, DHCP, Active Directory, and User profile storage. this will be migrated to a much faster machine and i am looking for any suggestions to help the migration go faster and less of a hassel.


Now before you all go and tell me to get a router. i have decided this is what i want to do and i want to learn how to use this, my copy of windows 2003 server is the trail edition by microsoft.

i was told since im running 2k3 is to get the other server up and running, setup all the services, then "push" all the Master Domain Controller Functions to the new server.

i was told that would be the easiest route to go.

it is p ossible...i've never personally done an AD migration...i've seen it done...but i wasn't as knowledgable as i am now about the stuff...so NONE of it made sense....i would do alot of reading and alot of backing up before tring it....

all the FSOM are pushed to my new server, so all i need to do is verify that all the comps in side the domain can see the new domain controller, and take my old server offline for the test.
