Hi,

We have a Win2K3 Domain, Single Forest & Domain. We also have secondary DC
for backup in case the primary fails.

The first DC holds all the FSMO roles and is also a DHCP server. It is
installed in a high-end server hardware. We want to transfer this DC to a
low-end server hardware.

We want to have the same DC, as it is, to be available in the other low-end
server hardware. Same name, ip etc...

Can someone guide the best way to do this.

Thanks in advance.

abc.
