We have yet to migrate to an AD domain model. We are still running NT 4.0 PDC/BDCs (primary domain controller/backup domain controllers). However, we are looking into migration in the future, probably within six to nine months. In your opinion, should we be looking into migrating to Windows 2000's version of AD or look at migrating into Windows Server 2003's version of AD? Thanks in advance.
It really comes down to a level of risk that you are willing to take. Windows 2000 is certainly established as an OS. You can find abundant
technical white papers
and assistance. With Windows 2003, it may be a little harder to find information. Windows 2003 has many expanded features, but has been built on top of Windows 2000 so a lot of it will be familiar. If you feel you can handle the extra risk, which I believe to be minimal, you should probably go with 2003. If you would rather go with something a little more seasoned go with 2000.
