Need Some urgent help here. In a couple of weeks we will be performing an upgrade from server 2003 to server 2008. Currently we have 2 servers running WinServer 2003 x86, one is the "primary" domain controller, and the other is a backup domain controller. I need to upgrade these both to Server 2008 x64 (using the same hardware). Now I know I need to do a clean install of Server 2008. So here are my plans. Make sure the backup server is up and running and authenticating people properly. Then I will take down the primary server, blow it away, install Win Server 2008 x64, add it to the domain, make it the primary domain controller, make sure the AD is replicated to it. Then I can take down the other server and upgrade it.
This is a very basic plan. here is where the help is needed. 1)is this correct 2)what are the specific steps
Any and all help would be appreciated
