    See here for migration to 2008:

    You can not do an inplace upgrade to 2008, prepare the schema with adprep command for 2008 on the 2000 Schema master and you have to add a 2008 server as member server and run dcpromo on it. Then make it DNS server (choose AD integrated zones) Global catalog server and move all 5 FSMO roles to the 2008 DC.

    hi all.

    I have this scenario : one windows 2000 server with users autentication, terminal server and my domain. the domain is TEONE .( I must keep this domain name )
    I have to migrate this to one brand new server with win2008.
    I haven´t installed it, so I can do anything that´s needed.
    does anyone have a step by step manual or something like this ?
    I want to change the server in one sunday, so the users, when come to work on monday, will not feel the change....

    You can try to install a new windows member server in your domain and then DCpromo this server to 2008. All users and AD objects should come along. Check the overview of Upgrade process:

    OK. I plan to shutdown the w2003 server, since it is an old machine ( pentium 3 ). the new one is a core 2 quad xeon. that´s why I sad move. ( I will domote and shutdown it)
