    Removing first server in tree


    I need to upgrade my IDM eDirectory, upgrading the servers to Windows
    2008 R2 64 bit and upgrading eDir to 64 bit. I have three servers with
    replicas.

    My plan is to remove the replica on the first server, remove all
    references to it in the tree and wait awhile to make sure everything is
    cleared. I will then kill the old Windows 2003 server and build a new
    2008 R2 64 bit with the same name and IP address. Then I will install 64
    bit eDirectory on that server and rinse and repeat with the other two.

    I have moved my master replica and Certificate Authority to a different
    server and have an error-free dsrepair using -a.

    Is there anything else I'm missing before I delete the replica? Is this
    a valid plan to upgrade everything? I have a limit on names and IPs to
    fit in our naming/addressing scheme, though I can probably get new
    names/IPs if I absolutely have to.

    Should work ok. The only tricky part is the Windows upgrade, IMHO, but
    since you're doing that with a wipe-and-reinstall, even that should be no
    big deal.
