Hello,

I'm lookin for a best practices that is the closest from my needed.
I got two domain controllers on old hardware servers that I need to migrate
to knew hardware servers. These two DCs are also DNS, DHCP.

The good thing is that they haven't any FSMO roles or other roles, all roles
are on other server. All the Forest and Domain are 2003 Native.

All thread on DC servers talk about migration on other domain or forest.
This is not what I'm looking for.

In the same time I wonders if it's possible to migrate them to Windows 2008
server. Actually they are 2003 R2 SP2.

If you know a best practice that is close from what I'm looking for... I
know it's something that seems easy but I don't want to miss something.

Thanks in advance.
