    I'm looking for some links that might be helpful. Here's some background.
    We have 2 domain controllers seperated by 40 miles and a point-to-point.
    Both servers do DNS and DHCP as well as Active Directory for our 2 loactions
    (192.168.1.x and 192.168.2.x). I'm replaceing one server outright. It's old
    and on its last leg. I have a new server on the way and will arrive
    tomorrow. I imagine it's not as simple as building the raid, installing the
    os and join it to the domain. Is it?

    Hi
    Yes is that simple, and if you plan to demote the othexisting one, make sure
    that all services provided by the existing server are also available in the
    new server, like DNS, DHCP....

    I hope that the information above helps you.
    Have a Nice day.

    Note. You don't have to move the FSMO roles if they're on the other DC.

    It's usually recommended that you power down the existing server for a
    couple of hours before you actually remove AD from it. You also need to
    gracefully remove AD from it -you do this by running DCPROMO again.
