I currently have a Windows Server 2008 R2 AD DC which is operating at Server 2003 functional level for the forest and domain.  I would like to elevate the domain and forest to the 2008 level, but before I do it is there anything I need to be aware of when doing it?

Do you have any Windows 2003 DC servers still running?

If so I would demote them first.
