Change of domain for the cluster nodes


We need to change our existing domain i.e. NT domain to windows 2003 domain for the SAP production server cluster nodes.

There are 2 nodes. They are in active active mode.

Windows 2000 advanced server is installed in the nodes.

Can anybody tell us that during the change of the domain what else we need to take care or what should be correct procedure for this so that database & application does not have any impact

Eagerly waiting for the reply

With best regards

    Hello Joydeep,

    will you upgrade the domain controllers and leave old domain or will you migrate to completely new one?

    best regards

    I would NOT do that.

    What immediately comes to my mind is:

    - users need to be recreated in the new domain

    - filesystem owners and permissions of all SAP and database directories must be changed

    - permissions on registry keys must be changed

    - owner/permissions of the files in the cluster filesystem must be changed

    - ...

    There is no easy way of doing this. Depending on the database that is used more things are necessary. If you don't exactly know, where which application has files, it will certainly be troublesome.

    The safest way would be to use a different hardware and do a homogeneous system copy by reinstalling the cluster in the new domain.
