    Remove DNS from Server 2003

    I am in the process of moving across to 2008 r2 from 2003. I have setup the new server and made it a DC after upgrading the AD schema. I am now wanting to move DNS over so I can demote the existing DC and then install R2. Does anyone have any advice on how to do it? I am planning to do this tomorrow morning, so help before then would be appreciated!!

    Thanks

    Anthony

    Have you transferred the FSMO roles off of the server you are going to demote?

    Once DNS is running on the new W2K8R2 box and is removed from the W2K3 box check to make sure DNS
    doesn't still reference the old W2K3 server.
