Windows Server 2000 to Server 2008 Hypervisor

I am currently working for a company that is looking to upgrade their current server platforms.  If anyone has had experience with the current server 2008 with hypervisor - would it be possible and advised to upgrade from a server 2000 platform to the server 2008 or should we first go to server 2003?  Also is there currently an "upgrade" version that would make it easy or would we have to go through the DC promo decommissioning process?

You can upgrade from 2000 to a 2008 domain. You would need to install all updates for the 2000 DC. Look over the posts below for step by step instructions on the upgrade. The upgrade process is fairly straight forward. I would though before you upgrade is to run a netdiag to test to make sure you don't have any existing problems on your network. If you want to use Hyper-V you will need to install the 64-bit edition of 2008. You must have the hardware to run 64-bit OS. Make sure you have all of this to use this verison of 2008 but it is required to use the hyper-v service.
