I just migrated our root CA from a 2003 server to a new 2008 R2 server with a different name than the previous 2003 CA using the guide from Microsoft, http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee126140%28v=ws.10%29.aspx I followed the guide to the letter and everything seems to work correctly. To account for the new server with a different name, I went into the registry file as directed in the guide, did a find and replace of the old server name with the new server name and saved and registered the registery backup file. Everything works and the new server issues new certificates but the certificates all have the old server name in them instead of the new one. Is this normal or did I do something wrong?

That is normal i.e. you maintain the same signing name while being hosted on a new server.
i.e. if at the time you setup the server as "My company name" rather than using the servername as is commonly suggested, the transfer from one server to the other would not be as ... dealing with the name reference of the CA server signer while the issuer is a different server.
