I have two 2003 servers. one called server1 and one called server2.

I want to remove server one cause it is old and no longer under warrentee. It has the following installed. DNS, DHCP, and it is also a DC. In this orginizaiton there are two domains. Domain1 and domain2. I want to migrate everything to domain2 because domain1 is on server1.  Server 2 also has DNS, DHCP, and DC for domain2

I am relitivly new to this and i know that this is a long question but I hope someone can help.

What steps should I take to make sure I get this server decomissioned.

What do you need migrate from Domain 2?
You said you want to remove server 1, do yo mean completely shut it down and not use it any more? If so, you will have only server 2 left on your network, you cannot have two domains on one server.

Sicne you are just moving 5 objects. use the ADMT to migrate these over to domain2 and then remove the old domain. This is ofcourse if you are no longer using DNS or DHCP from domain1.

can your dns and dhcp on the other domain handle the whole network?

just try shut down the server 1 (don't remove anything from it yet) and see what problem you will get, fix the problems until everything is cool. Then you can power on server 1 and de-promo and remove what ever you want to remove.
