How can I upgrade AD server from Windows 2k3R2 to Windows 2k8R2?

By linh274 ·
My current AD server is Windows server 2k3R2 (32bit). Can I upgrade to Windows server 2k8R2? I hear that Windows server 2k8R2 support for 64bit only?
How can I do?

Many thanks!

And yes you are correct Server 2008 is 64 Bit Only and will require 64 Bit Hardware, which isn't much of an issue as most Hardware for the last 5 or so years is all 64 Bit.

The big advantage in using 64 Bit Os's is that you are not restricted to the 3.25 GIG of System Memory that the 32 Bit Systems are and Exchange Mailbox's can be larger than the 32 Bit versions could ever cope with.
