General discussion


Here is my scenario: We have a server2000 machine running our group policy. We have a new server2003 machine that is trying to run the group policy, but every time we take the 2000 machine offline, nobody can sign on to their machine. How can we make the network stop looking at the old server?

I had already seen that page. It would be very useful if the IT guy before me hadn't already tried to migrate.
I think that we are kind of wanting to be able to authenticate with either server. Sort of like having a backup in case the other one dies.

Sad situation.

So it's a botched migration. You'll have to have each machine join your new domain. Shouldn't take more than a day.
