OK, I took over as the IT guy at my company and have a mess on my hands.  It
has been almost a year of putting out fires and cleaning up after the other
guy.  I have FINALLY goten to a point where I must clean up AD.  I am
starting to have pretty serious connection issues.  I will be removing our
current AD server from our environment and I want to know if I should clean
up AD first, then replicate to a new server or should I replicate, demote and
remove old server, then clean up AD?

This will be a service call to MS, so I also need to know how much will it
interfere with daily operations, or do I need to do it after hours?
