Hi Experts
We have a Windows 2003 Std Server on our school network.  We also have a Windows Server 2008 Std R2 server that we are not using at the moment.  The Windows 2003 Server is the domain controller but it's giving us problems and I want to retire it. I would like to setup the Windows 2008 Server to take over the roles of the Windows Server 2003 box.  How can I do this?
