"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Your question is very vague.  What are going to be consolidating?  Are you considering virtualization?
Are these your only servers?  If so, you should have atleast two servers running DNS and Global Catalog.
