    Hi Nitin,

    Its difficult to take you through the entire migration process, however if you have any doubts, or issues, that can be taken care of.
    To start with, you can promote the 2008 server as a Additional domain controller, assign it with its required roles/services. For example: DNS, DHCP, etc. Setup exchange on it, Migrate exchange mailboxes, and finally if you want to decommission the old 2003 dc, then transfer all the FSMO roles too.

    For adding 2008 DC: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/l...27(WS.10).aspx

    For Moving Exchange to 2007: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/l...XCHG.140).aspx (This article applies to 2007 as well, though its marked for 2010)

      You want help with this extremely complex task yet you supply us with so little information. For example:
      Is Exchange on a member Server or a DC?
      How many Servers do you have in total?
      Is Exchange 2007 going to be installed onto a Windows Server 2008 DC or Member Server?
      Is this a single site or are there branch offices?
      What is the present hardware setup you are using and what HDD configurations are being used (RAID 1, RAID 0, RAID 1+0, RAID 5 etc etc )?
      What is the hardware configuration you are moving to?
      What else is being installed on the Server(s)?
      1 1 was a racehorse.
      2 2 was 1 2.
      1 1 1 1 race 1 day,
      2 2 1 1 2
