Adding W2K3 R2 x64 DC to Existing W2K3 R2 x32 domain

Discussion in 'Windows 64bit' started by =?Utf-8?B?RGF2ZSBBbGxlcnRvbg==?=, Aug 25, 2006.

  1. Apologies if this question has been answered previously - I have just bought
    a Proliant DL380 G5 and want to install Windows Server 2003 R2 64-bit OS,
    join the existing domain, which has a 32-bit DC running R2. Then I want to
    dcpromo the new server.
    Are there any gotchas I should be aware of? Will x64 & x32 DC's co-exist
    happily? I've seen some comments elsewhere about needing to run adprep from
    CD2, but is that only if you have an existing non-R2 DC?

    Thanks in advance for any advice.

  2. They can happily co-exist. You would only have to do an adprep if you
    weren't already at the R2 level, and you are.
