I have windows server 2003 sp2 for my ADS,DNS,DHCP and I want to migrate to 2008 server.
My 2003 server sp2 is x64bit what flavour of 2008 will be supported.
Do you have any installation or migration screenshots or videos available.
Can somebody post screenshots for migration performed from 2003 server to 2008 that would be more clear.
I have installed 2008 R2 Standard x64 on a Test Server.
what is the procedure which i should follow before testing it on the live servers.

Here is a pretty good article.

I have personally went though this process to get us up to 2008 r2.

I have done allot of these so I never personally followed this guide, but its looks pretty complete.

I had extra steps not listed in this guide. Someone before me installed exchange and a domain controller on the same server....

So basically the guide looks good but if you have something fishy in your environment you'll have more steps than this guide supplies.
