Hello all

I am planning on upgrading my last 2003 sp2 DC to 2008 in a couple of days.
Currently this DC is a GC DNS server, and a enterprise root CA. I am
planning on doing an in-place upgrade of this DC. I have a good system state
backup, and I will be taking a backup of the CA database, before I do the
upgrade. Does 2008 do anything to the root certificate after the upgrade?
or do I need to perform any steps after the upgrade to 2008 that are
specific to certificate services?

Thanks very much

I haven't heard of anything that needs to be completed, but this isn't the
place for this question, this has nothing to do with Directroy Services. I
have coped the security NewsGroup in and hopefully someone over there can
give you a complete answer.

They are the PKI experts.

On a side note, I would suggest you not do an in place upgrade on a DC (Or
any other server).
