  • Please make below changes to your setup.

    1) You client machine TCP/IP configuration has old DNS Server ip hence you need set the ip of old DC(2003) to you DC (Server 2008).
    2) Before shutdown your old DC 2003 please make sure all below test are successful.

    - Ran dcdiag /q on both dc ,its should must passsed.
    - Ran repadmin /replsummary, no replication issue reported.
    - Sysvol and netlogon share are available on both dc.

    - Rebooted the client machine.
