Hi All,  We currently have a Windows 2000 domain.  We just received a server with 2003.  My question is can I add this server to the network and make it a domain controller?  Will this affect the other DC's running Win2K?  What I am thinking on doing is building another server we have with Win 2003 and putting Exchange 2003 on it, do you also think this will affect the eother exchange server running Windows 2K and Exchange 2K

Signed,

Confused with researching this  :>)

yes you can.
You need to update the active directory of the 2000 servers before dcpromo on the 2k3.
