We have an old Windows NT server box that now has nothing on it except - it is the domain controller for one domain and it is the DHCP server for that network segment.  I would like to move those 2 functions off of that box and decommission it.

I have a newer server that has 2003 Enterprise server installed and is in use for some other things. I would like to make that the primary domain controller and move all the users over (copy/ move so I do not have to recreate all the users and reestablish the trust relationships between machines). Ditto the DHCP, turn that option on and move all the current leases and reservations over.

Can this be done so I do not have to recreate or redo anything?  If so, how?
