Upgrade Server 2003 Std to Server 2008
I've got an old 2003 SP2 server running as a DC and as our domain Certificate Authority as a virtual machine. I would like to upgrade it to 2008 so all of the DCs are the same but I seem to find conflicting information on whether this will work or not.
I know I can't upgrade to 2008 R2 as the 2003 is 32 bit and R2 is 64 bit only - but can I do an in place upgrade of 2003 Standard to 2008 SP2 without wrecking the DC and the CA? I've never run an inplace upgrade before but its necessary this time!
