I have a Windows 2003 R2 SP2 server that I would like to upgrade to Windows 2008. This server is running as our PDC. At the same time (if possible) I would also like to migrate to a new server with updated hardware. My question is what would be the quickest method with the least amount of down time to accomplish this?
