I am using the Server as domain controller and as file server which is running with Windows 2000. All the things are in this server. Recently I have bought a Server which is running with Windows Server 2008. However, I don’t know how the migration is to be done. So, please help me to upgrade the server 2000 to server 2008. I am looking for step by step instruction. Thanks in advance.

There are few things that you need to take care of. I will tell you the basic information about the migration process from Windows Server 2000 to Windows Server 2008. I am also putting the links for the full detailed guide too.

First of all see that the new server has the Windows Server 2008 SP1 installed and that you have Windows Server 2000 SP4 on your old machine.

Upgrade the forest schema of 2000 by adprep/forestprep.

Similarly upgrade the domain schema addprerp/domainprep.

Migrate DHCP service from your old machine to a new machine.

There are a lot of things other than these like installing the DNS  and migrating the file sharing service, but I can show you how to do them. For a detailed guide use the link here.
