How do I transfer FSMO roles on a 2008 DC to our other 2008 DC

The server that is the PDC and has the FSMO roles is going to be replaced.  How do I get the roles from it to our other existing DC?  Both are 2008

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I prefer using Petri's articles myself:
www.petri.co.il/transferring_fsmo_roles.htm

(The process should be the same for 2008).

Also remember if this is the PDCe in the forest root make sure the new PDCe syncs from an external time source.

Thanks

your answers came in at almost identical times and both articles are my answer.  I'll split the points.  I do agree Petri looks simpler.

Thanks to both.
