Currently running active directory in mixed mode. All domain controllers are running windows 2000 server. I have one exchange 5.5 server. I need to be running in native mode for security and advanced group memberships. Will I have a problem with the exchange server if I switch to native mode.

As long as all DC's are Windows 2000+, you should be fine.  Exchange 5.5 doesn't differentiate between NT native/mixed mode.

You mean native mode Active Directory, of course. Right? There is an Exchange native/mixed mode as well. Yes, as long as you're talking about Active Directory native mode you'll be fine.

Yes, active directory native mode not exchange native/mixed. I wasn't sure if exchange 5.5 needed active directory mixed mode.

No, I've run Exchange 5.5 in two different Native AD domains. Flipped the switch myself.

Cheers,
