    dcdiag /test:dns - tells me that isn't a valid test.

    The FSMO test is still failing, though.
    Maybe it is not valid on server 2000, could you post the output of the FSMO error?

    Code:
        Starting test: FsmoCheck 
           Warning: DcGetDcName(GC_SERVER_REQUIRED) call failed, error 
           A Global Catalog Server could not be located - All GC's are down.
    I went through a fix on microsoft's website. Told me to change the value of burflag in the registry, that didn't seem to work though.

    However, the 2008 server is now prompted with an authentication box when trying to join the domain. Baby steps, but still good news.

    Authentication is not working. Well, that might be misleading, authentication appears to work but it tells me there might all ready be a computer with that name on the domain. I changed the name and it the error still came up.

    It tells me to "remove any stale conflicting account"

    The do just that, places you need to check Are AD Users and Computers, sites and services or rename the server to something you know 100% has never been used on the domain.

    Could you also check the output of "netdom query FSMO" and see if netdom agrees that you dc holds all roles.

    Also check DNS for the existence of _gc records (SRV) records, these should reference your server. If they do not exist restart the netlogon service, this should register those records and therfore advertise the service, if they do not get created they can be created manually.

    Here are a few links you should check out:

    How to upgrade Windows 2000 domain controllers to Windows Server 2003

    Prepare a Windows 2000 or Windows Server 2003 Domain for a Domain Controller That Runs Windows Server 2008 or Windows Server 2008 R2

    By the way, if you have Exchange 2000 you'll have some other things to keep in mind too.

    How to remove the first Exchange 2000 Server computer from the site

    XADM: Exchange Management Service Remains After You Remove Exchange 2000 Server

    Step-by-Step: Migrating Exchange 2000 to Exchange 2003 Using New Hardware


    I recently made this exact same journey. We went from a Windows Server 2000 domain to 2008 R2 and from Exchange 2000 to Exchange 2003. The plan was to go from Exchange 2000 to 2010 but we're in a holding pattern until Microsoft and Cisco figure out the issue with Unity 7 and Exchange 2010.

    Additionally, I would suggest testing things like this in a completely separate, isolated environment.

    I don't have a _gc record. However, there is a gc folder under the _msdcs, though. I'm not sure how to create a _gc record, I'll look it up.

    RTmarc - I'll have to take a look at those links after lunch. You're lucky you use Cisco voice stuff, we use this nortel garbage that I hate.
