Hello - I have an old PDC I want to retire. It is a Windows 2003 server running Exchange 2003.

I have a BDC that is a 2008 R2 with Exchange 2010. I want to migrate the mail services to the new server.

Is there a step by step process to do this?

You need to move all Exchange services off the server before you touch it as a domain controller. That will be a regular swing migration which is heavily documented. DO NOT DCPROMO or remove the global catalog role until Exchange has been removed.
Once you have removed Exchange, before you run DCPROMO, restart the existing Exchange server so it will find other DCs.
