Currently i have single windows 2003 domain in my organization, there is two
domain controllers in domain, first domain controller is physical server,
second dc is a virtual machine which is on VMware ESXi host. Physical server
which is forest and domain root dc operates with old hardware and i want to
move it to the ESXi host too. I have already transfered all FSMO roles to
second dc. Is there any specific ways to transfer forest root and domain
root dc? Maybe i need to backup system state of the first dc and then
install new windows 2003 server and restore from that backup?

Thanks in advance

Hello Raimundas,

I am not sure what your forest/domain is built. Do you have domain.com as
root and sub.domain.com or only domain.com?

Best regards
