Win2003 transfer all roles per fsmo first or dns migration?

Last Modified: 2015-12-18
Hello Experts,

I have a Win2003 server listed as having all the roles in the fmso query. It is also the DNS server for AD.  I already built a 2008 Server and
started DNS and replicated the zones from 2003.  How to go about transferring all the roles, which to do first?

Retire DNS 2003,-add the new DNS to secondary entry on all the NICs. then go through the steps to transfer the roles?
