Windows 2008 R2 raise domain level from 2003

All of my servers are running 2008 R2. My 2 domain controllers are also 2008 R2, but running at 2003 domain and forest level. this is because I upgrade from 2003 a while back and we still had some 2003 Servers running. Now those 2003 servers are gone. I would like to raise my levels up to current 2008 R2. Not sure on what steps I need to take. I see alot of upgrading from 2003 and so forth. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

thanks Don

This explains how to raise the functional level.

Raise the Forest Functional Level


Raise the Domain Functional Level


Exchange 2010 will not be affected by this change; will be transparent to users.

This explains more about functional level changes.

What is the Impact of Upgrading the Domain or Forest Functional Level?
