I have read this document for similar migration:

However as a first step you must perform the upgrade and wait for the schema changes are replicated to all DCs in all sites :

You should upgrade roles as following order:

1.First of all check for pre-requests for installing exchange 2010 ( as MinoDC suggest)
2.upgrade the CAS servers.
3.upgrade hub transport server.
4.upgrade mailbox servers. ( here you may deploy a new mailbox 2010 server, move all mailbox to this server then remove the old one to decrees the downtime to minimal.
