We are looking to replace our old domain controllers with new ones. What would be the best way of going about this? The DCs run DNS and DHCP services.
My thought was to setup the new servers on the network, promote to DCs, so we'd have 4 DCs on the network. But then I'm not too sure what to do about swapping the DNS & DHCP services.
Are there any other 'gotchas' I need to consider? We have an Exchange server - is that going to be affected?
