Certificate Authority Server Upgrade from 2003 to 2008

I have been tasked to upgrade our existing Windows 2003 Certificate Authority Server to Windows Server 2008.  The CA is currently installed on a member server, the new server will also be on a member server and not installed on  the domain controller.  Need assistance to carry out this task.   Any documents, best practices, or step by step guides would be much appreciated.  Thank You all in advance.

The Microsoft AD CS Migration Guide should cover everything.  It's the guidance we used when we upgraded.  The best book I've seen on the subject has gotten stupid expensive, and I can't believe hasn't been updated to 2012 or at least more printed.

We we did this upgrade, we carried the database over from one version to the new... and had to ensure that the new servers had the exact same name as the old servers.

Two notes:
(1)The Brian Komar book is available electronically, and while the 2012 version was never published, that same site indicates that the 2016 version is in the works now.
(2) https:#a39623945 provides useful guidance, and answers the original question.
