We are a small office running a single domain on SBS 4.5 with 25 users.
I'm getting ready to upgrade the entire office to Win2000. We've already
purchased a new server and SBS 2000 (not installed or online yet). Half of
the office will get new computers, the other half will get existing machines
upgraded to Win2000 from NT4. Most the machines running right now are 98
and NT 4. We already have a few Win2000 workstations running.
My question is related more to planning and implementaion rather than
technical. What is the best method to accomplish this and does anyone have
any suggestions for good resources that discuss preferred upgrade steps?
The major questions is:
Order of Implemention? Bring the server online first or the workstations?
Or all at the same time? I'm thinking that since we already have a few
Win2K workstations online, we should bring them all up, and then do the
server next. I'm going to follow the MS whitepaper on migrating the server.
Any advice is welcome,
