I am contemplating upgrading a 2003 domain to 2008 R2 using the in-place upgrade routine.  I would very much appreciate some comments/watchoutfors/gotchas that I should keep in mind when doing this. I am not looking for all the things that could go wrong but sort of the 'top 10' of problems encountered in the process.  Real world experience and/or links to  'trench stories' would be appreciated.
