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?

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?
