FMSO Roles

Hi, We currently have a mix of 2003 and 2012 R2 domain controllers. I am looking to migrate the FSMO roles from our old 2003 server to the 2012 DC. Can I do this in one go or is there a few extra steps in between. The DF level is currently 2003.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Exactly what I was after. I have migrated many times from 2008 > 2008 and 2008 > 2012, but never 2003 to 2012 directly. Thanks :)
Yea that 2003 is JURASSIC!!!!!!! I have ONE client still holding on to it for DEAR LIFE!
Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

dont forget full migration from frs to dfr.  It's a 4 command process that rebuilds sysvol.
