Replace 2008 DC with 2008 R2 DC RRS feed

  • Question

  • We would like to upgrade our domain controllers to Windows 2008 R2 from Windows 2008.  The first install must be done on another server and will replace the DC currently holding PDC and RID FSMO roles because it is 32 bit.  We know we must transfer the roles to another server, demote the controller, remove AD services, then remove from the domain.  We would like the new server to keep the same host name and IP address.  Are we missing anything ?  The DCs are also integrated DNS servers for the domain.  Thanks.
