Checking Whether a Windows 2000 Domain Controller Can Be Upgraded to Windows Server 2003

Using a graphical user interface

Insert a Windows Server 2003 CD into the Windows 2000 domain controller or map a drive to the files contained on the CD. Run the following command from the \i386 directory:

	> winnt32 /checkupgradeonly

Using a command-line interface

To produce a compatibility report from the command line, first you need to create a text file containing the following information:

Win9xUpgrade = Yes

[Win9xUpg]ReportOnly = Yes

SaveReportTo = "\\server1\upgradereports\"

Save this file as unattend.txt, and then run the following from the command-line:

	> winnt32 /checkupgradeonly /unattend:c:\unattend.txt
