    Post Upgrading DC's From 2003 R2

    Hi All,

    I am researching upgrading my two DCs from 2003 R2 to 2008 over the April holidays.
    I was wondering if any of you have already done this and if so how did it go? Are there any "hidden dangers"?

    Thanks!!

    just a quick note to you all that where interested to say the upgrades were a complete success!
    Had some minor issues with Windows Updates after but refreshing the CA solved this.
    If any of you have any questions give me a shout!
