We are a small school with only one server.  I just want to make sure I
do this correctly.  I'm replacing my DC with a new machine.
1) Configure new server
2) join domain and promote to a DC
3) Demote old DC
Can I test the new DC by just shutting down the old DC prior to
demoting?  I would hate to lose all the student login information.
Can I use robocopy.exe to move all the folders with permissions to the
new box?
Is there a way to move my DHCP settings?
Is there a way to move print server printers?
Any help would be appreciated.
