In the classes on server administration. Also you can find fine books and of course the web. But if I could I would retire the 2000 since it has some issues that MSFT never patched so it is a security risk. There are so few 2000 machines with more than a TB of disk space for a reason I hope you know why. And if it does fail before you retire it, it can be painful.
Sorry but again, you need to take the classes, books or use the internet on this one and my last advice is to never risk a business on 2000 due to that unpatched condition that I hope you know about.
I have a network enviroment where my windows 2000 server is just acting as fileserver for sharing, so all the users has an account there with username, password and a list of access rights.
Now i want to keep this server but also i want to add a new Windows 2008 R2 64 bit server as a domain controller.
1- It Is this possible have both server and still allow users to access both of them ?
2-It is ok to make this server 2008 a the domain contoller and enable AD, DNS and dhcp ?
3- I want all the users accounts to be the same in the domain controller so they can still use the same username and password to login into the domain as well into the windows 2000 server that is setup as a workgroup. What i am suppose to do here to make sure that when a user logs onto the domain, they are also still able to access the windows 2000 server ?
4- Do i need to do something to the windows 2000 sever to make sure this is seen by the new DC or join the domain controller, or how do we integrate this old windows server 2000 to still be seem and still be functional in the enviroment so it can be accessed by the clients computers?
Note: My clients computers are windows 2000 pro, xp and windows7 32 and 64bit.
The reason i would like to keep the windows 2000 server is cause i have SBT PRO 5.0 application installed there and about 20 users access this server to run the application. so would like to keep this in this server in case the new server failed at any time, still the users can access this server.
Thanks a lot in advance
