Hi There,

I have 1 server running AD and about 20 Windows clients, the server is running Win2k3. I have a Windows 2k8 server acting as a file server. I want to make the Win2k8 server a DC and decommission the Win2k3 for redeployment.


Is there anything special I need to do to make this work or it's just a simple addition to the domain.

Do I need to transfer the roles to the new server or it'll take them over?

Anything else I should take into account?
