Part IX: Appendices > Windows 2000 Migration

Windows 2000 Migration

After you define your AD structure and perform any pre-migration domain consolidation, it's time to deploy Windows 2000. Prior to migrating, be sure to make one or more complete backups of all the servers. You should synchronize and then power down one of the BDCs prior to migrating any machines, so you can quickly recover if a major problem occurs. Begin by migrating the PDC, follow with the BDCs, and finally migrate the member servers and workstations. For master/resource and multiple master domain models, migrate the master domain(s) first. If you have a complete trust model you truly plan to migrate, the order isn't important. Be sure to leave each Windows 2000 domain in mixed mode until all domain controllers in a given domain have been converted to Windows 2000. After this is complete, you can make the irreversable switch to native mode, which allows you to take advantage of universal groups and group nesting.
