Our current domain consists of Windows 2003, Windows 2008 and Windows 2008 R2 domain controllers.
Domain and Forest functional level is 2003 native.

We are planning on upgrading all 2003 domain controllers to 2008 (all 32 bit).
We have obviously already upgraded schema, since all new domain controllers are 2008 based, so we do not need to run adprep/forestprep/domainprep.

Question is - how easy is to do in place upgrade from 2003 based DC to 2008 one.
Should we expect any problems or difficulties?
