Hello,

I'm not sure if this group is the best one to aks, but I try. :)

We have aforrest with a toplevel domain and several second level domains
here. All are running on Windows Server 2003 (no DCs have R2 up to now)

In one of this second level domains we may have the need for the NIS
capabilities of R2 now.

If we want to use this, would it be enough to install one DC with R2 in this
location and let it take this role, or do we have to update the whole
domain?
Or even worse: Do we have to update the whole forrest?

Regards
Stefan

ok, but do I also have to update ALL domain controllers to R2 or only one
that ones that should do NIS?

Do you have a source from MS or so describing on what exactly is to do?

Stefan

to use NIS you need to update the AD schema to support that and a schema
update is forest wide!

Hello,

interesting article, but I don't see if I need to upgrade all servers in my
domain to R2 or if it is enough to upgrade only one DC in the one location
that will use NIS.

Regards

Stefan

I have never done this myself, but I assume to use NIS ONE DC is the master
NIS server, the UNIX servers become the slave NIS servers and eventual other
DCs also become slave NIS servers. Besides you need to think what
interaction exist between windows clients/servers and UNIX clients/servers.

Just trying to help, but as you can see it may not be the answer you are
looking for. My experience is that those Reference docs from MS are very
good to help you on your way
