We are currently running 2 Windows 2003 servers.  Both servers have been setup as domain controllers;  howver one of them handles all the FSMO roles

We will be decomissioning both the 2003 servers in the near future, and I need to transfer Active Directory roles to the Windows 2008 R2 server.

Does anyone have a good checklist and preparation document on the correct approach to this process?

Thanks in advacnce.
