I'm preparing for a Domain Controller upgrade from 2003R2 64bit to 2008R2 64bit. The domain currently has a 2008 DC as it's primary Domain Controller, so, the domain has been prepped already. My question is, the 2003 DC currently has 2 roles defined, file server and print server. In doing an in-place upgrade will any of these 2 roles be affected and is there any potential for data lose on the file shares?

Thanks.
