Move AD to new server

Hi Experts,
Nildram2 was the first AD Server in the forrest and therefore held all the FSMO roles. I need to move all the FSMO roles to another AD server on another network (still same forrest, domain etc). I have moved three of the FSMO roles over to the new AD server, I still need to move Schema and Infastrusture, can I simply transfer the remaining roles? I am concerned as this server was the first in the domain/forrest, it there anything else I need to do before/after afrer moving all the FSMO roles over?
"lon-srv-ad1" knows about 5 roles
Schema - CN=NTDS Settings,CN=NILDRAM2,CN=Servers,CN=Nildram,CN=Sites,CN=Configuration,DC=qbitsa,DC=com
Domain - CN=NTDS Settings,CN=LON-SRV-AD1,CN=Servers,CN=London1,CN=Sites,CN=Configuration,DC=qbitsa,DC=com
PDC - CN=NTDS Settings,CN=LON-SRV-AD1,CN=Servers,CN=London1,CN=Sites,CN=Configuration,DC=qbitsa,DC=com
RID - CN=NTDS Settings,CN=LON-SRV-AD1,CN=Servers,CN=London1,CN=Sites,CN=Configuration,DC=qbitsa,DC=com
Infrastructure - CN=NTDS Settings,CN=NILDRAM2,CN=Servers,CN=Nildram,CN=Sites,CN=Configuration,DC=qbitsa,DC=com

You might want to make sure the new server has a DNS server installed and that the new server is a global catalog.

The first dc in the domain is no different from any of the other dc's other than the fact that it has the default roles assigned to it. Once you transfer them off and make sure that DNS has replicated, you can decomission it.
