    Question 2003 r2 CA 2008r2

    we have a windows 2003 R2 DC and i am planning on moving over to a windows 2008 R DC and eventually remove the PDC from our infrastructure and then move the 2nd DC but my problem is, is that from what i have just read about moving CA to a different server depending on the version e.g 32bit to 64 bit you cant do it now has any one ever tried this because other wise I'm going to have to install 32bit version

    Don't know about your CA question but You know 2008R2 is 64bit only right?

    You cannot do an inplace upgrade from 32bit to 64bit O/S
