Will file server migration toolkit do everything I need to replace and old file server

I am replacing an existing 2003 server with a new 2003 server.  The old server will not be used anymore.  If I run the file server migration toolkit, will I need to do anything else on the network?

if it is standard migration of file shares and such then you should not have a problem.

Will the migration tool also take care of removing the old domain controller from the network?

Ahhh you did not mention domain controller earlier, so this filesever is also accting as a domain controller?

Sorry, the server I will be replacing is a domain controller.   It's only function is as a file server.  I have a seperate server for AD and DHCP.  My thought was to setup the new server as a file server, copy the data to the new server, mirror the 2 servers for a week or so, then run the file server migration tool.  After that, will I have to promote and demote the servers?
