I have configured a 2 node (win server 03 64 enterprise) cluster on two member servers of an existing domain. I would like to promote the two nodes (new servers) to domain controllers and demote all old domain controllers. Is this possible without having to destroy the cluster configuration?

It is NOT recommended to have DCs in a cluster. Have multiple DCs by all means - but not in a cluster
