Full Migration 2003 to 2008

Hi

I am new to server migration and am looking for input on the types of migration that would best meet my orginizations needs. Our servers need to have high availability. We currently have one main DC with he backup both running 2003 r2 we would like to migrate the correct schema to our 2008 r2 servers. My goal is to migrate multiple roles from sver2003 to 2008. These roles include AD, DNS, DHCP, GP, and file services. Now I see tutorials all over the Internet on how to migrate and but not as much on other roles is there a full comprehensive guild on how to go about this process. Like which roles should I migrate first and what the best type of migration would be to meet our needs. And what are the best practices I'm willing to buy books DVDs to learn this as fast but good as possible. Any suggestions.

Hi there,
Yes you are right that there are plenty of artikles and most of them are really good.
My favorite is:
http://msmvps.com/blogs/mweber/archive/2010/02/10/upgrading-an-active-directory-domain-from-windows-server-2003-to-windows-server-2008-or-windows-server-2008-r2.aspx

but you need to do two thing in advance :-)
 - make a backup
and
 -  decide what you are looking for... for example do you want to keep the old servers as a hardware ?! or you had two new servers and you are looking for a Win2008 mirror of your current enviroment.

about training - all books are good if we read them at all ;-). most of the guys prefer just clearn by cklicking.

if you need fast pass - my recomendation would be a MOC (microsoft official course) course
if you would like to go deeper and you have good knowlege about AD and netwroking - they you could go for the MS self passes kits
(books about 1000 pages with really tiny scripts :-))

DVDs , movies, come one you doare not searching for someone to toell you what you should do right ?
:-)
cheers
Svet.
