I have a small AD with ONE forest and ONE domain

Are below "Part #3" the correct steps ?
===========================================================
Part #1, 20 hours ago
  1. setup new domain controller
  2. moved 5 FSMO roles to it
  3. made sure everything has replicated

Part #2, Now
  1. open Active Directory Sites and Services
  2. open existing SITE
  3. see NEW server
  4. click "NTDS Settings"
  5. shows PARTNER server is OLD server that is in the same SITE
  6. click on other SITES
  7. see that NEW server does NOT display
  8. make sure I can ping new server's IP and HOSTNAME from other SITES

Part #3, Adding NEW server to above #7 ?
  1. rightClick on "NTDS Settings"
  2. leftClick "New", then "Connection"
  3. doubleClick the NEW server from the list
  4. demote and remove OLD server
  5. OLD server automatically removes itself
     from "NTDS Settings" on all locations
