    I am hoping someone can offer me some advice/guidelines to follow with
    migrating from one domain with 2003 DCs to another domain with 2008 DCs. The
    person who started this has left the company and I've been asked to look into
    getting it completed and I could do with some helpful assistance.

    The setup for the current domain is as follows:
    2 DC's, both Server 2003, both GC servers with 1 DC holding all the FSMO
    Currently in W2K Native Mode

    The setup for the new domain as it had been left is as follows:
    2 DC's, both Server 2008, neither are GC servers with 1 DC holding the
    following FSMO roles: fsmoPDc, fsmoINFRA, fsmaRID. The others aren't assigned.
    Currently in W2K3 Domain Mode

    There is currently a Windows 2000 trust between the 2 domains.

    Correct me if I'm wrong but, as I understand it, I need to put a Server 2008
    DC into the current domain in order to use ADMT 3.1 to carry out the
    migration. I have the lengthy ADMT 3.1 document to go through but, as I asked
    at the beginning, could someone offer me any advice/guidelines that I need to
    do to ensure the migration is successful?

    Many Thanks
