- When the old server comes back from the shop, how do I redirect and sync all data to where they were originally?
- How do I then set up a RAID on the new machine, make this machine the domain master and redirect all the My Documents and other folders on the network used by different departments to this machine, and then make the machine that was in the shop a backup server?
As for synchronizing the data, you'll have to perform that task manually. The redirection process does not move data nor sync like offline files.
2. Your second issue is a complex one. I suggest hiring a local Win2k expert to assist you on site. If you must perform these tasks on your own without training, you can find instructions by searching on "RAID" and "dcpromo" at Microsoft's Win2k Web site.
