We are implementing a new Windows 2008 server to replace a Windows 2003 server. The 2003 system acts as a domain controller, the main Active Directory and runs terminal services for 25 users.

Does anyone have a step by step porocess to duplicate the environment from one server to another?

We would like to set up the new server separately and then install and replace the previous server.

I also believe you would have to purchase new terminal services licenses for server 2008. I'm not positive about this but it would be an expensive mistake.
