    You will have to install the new main server first, AD, DNS, and whatever else
    transfer the fsmo roles to the new main server,;en-us;Q255690
    let replicate
    then demote the old main serverserver. make sure it dosent hold any roles

    You will also have to update your exchange server for the new server. Thats for the update service

    And Also the global address list.
