1. Build new server
2. Instal Win2k8r2
3. DCPRomo to make domain controller
4. add roles, DNS, DHCP
5. configure DHCP / activate DHCP
6. disable DHCP on old server
7. demote old server (dcpromo)
8. install WSUS on new server
9. point machines to new server for WSUS manually or with GPO
10. shut down and retire old server.

then you cannot follow my steps to do that.  What you want to do requires downtime.

you will need to copy all of the data off that server first. then shut it off and build the new one then you can use the same name and IP.

you can use the same IP.  first you must use a differnt IP, bring it online, do the promo, let it replicate with the old DC then shut off old DC and then change the IP on the new DC.

All done...

you will have some but minimal downtime.

My solution is correct and works.
