Windows 2000 AD Domain To Windows 2008 R2 SP1 Domain


  • Hello,

    Our current network consists of 9 Win 2k Domain controllers and 7 sites along with Exchange 2003. The Domain controllers are running on Proliant servers. I know that we can not do an inplace upgrade to Server 2008 R2. We want to retire the older hardware that the Win 2K DC's are running on and install Windows 2008 R2 on new servers and add them to the Win 2K Domain as members servers then promote the Windows 2008 to  Domain controllers. So I have a total of 9 Win 2k Domain controllers to replace with Windows 2008 Domain controllers.

    I am currently building a test duplicate network of our live network to test the upgrade process. Not being familiar with Server 2008 I have been searching for good documentation on this.

    Does anybody know of reall good documentation that explains the process of what I am trying to do? Any information would be appreciated.
