HI,

here is a step by step to remove the old domain controller once you have your new one up and running,  I would suggest that once you have a good replication, that you let your old machine spin for a while before you shut it down.  maybe even just shut it down once you transfer all of the fsmo(?) tokens.  I wouldn't rush to remove it from active directory right away..

that way if something unexpected happens...  you have some recourse.

yes,

its important to transfer the tokens before you shutdown the old machine, (and ultimately remove it.) you can force it after the fact,  but its cleaner to do it first

once you transfer them to the new server,  they will stay there.
