2008 R2 migration

I'm migrating a server from 2003 to 2008R2, I'm looking for a solid checklist.



I think you want to update active directory 2k3 to 2k8 if yes have a look these articles hope will help you to update.

Is this a DC or member server?

I would create a new server name and use a different ip address.

Then you can run then side by side.

Trying to keep same name and ip address can have issues.
