    Upgrading 2003 SP1 domain controller to 2003 R2

    Is it really as simple as this article makes out? I presume if so that I just need to make sure I run the upgrade on both my DCs?

    It was pretty easy when I did it.

    Can't remember any specifics but. It's Microsoft so designed for numpty's, easy if it works like it should. If it goes wrong could turn into a 'mare though.

    Yeah that's exactly what I'm afraid of... If it goes as planned then great, if not my AD schema is screwed and it's a reinstall & restore. Not something I'd like to do really if I can at all help it.

    Well no obviously.

    Just make sure you've got a backup, and lots of time. If tis goes well you'll only need an hour but like you say, could take ages if not.
