In Place Upgrade from NT4.0 Domain..HELP!!

By dgemcse ·
Ok, SAM is a mess, but need to keep intact..It will be much more difficult to create another domain, so please do not suggest that. Here's the rub...
Will bring up a new BDC, then promote to PDC, then do an in place upgrade on THAT hardware. Then on a NEW server, install AD and replicate. What concerns do I have about AD roles transferring to the new replica? I basically want to get rid of the first UPGRADED machine, as I would rather have a clean install on the NEW hardware, but MUST take the BDC,PDC,Inplace upgrade method here to ensure my SAM is good.
Roles like first server in a domain, FSMO and the like. I need to be sure that AD on the NEW hardware has everything it needs going forward.
I've looked all over the place and can?t find much on this, except to say that it should be done, and I agree.
What kind of dangers could I face moving forward? It's only one domain now, and we have other locations WITHOUT domains, that will become part of the new domain, so it will be just adding to containers after this one domain upgrade.

Don't want to fix it after I break it without knowing why it's broken..
