One of my colleagues just did this yesterday.  Domino doesn't care whether it is on a member, PDC, or BDC -- and doesn't even know the difference or the change.  Windows has no clue whether Domino is even running, as opposed to any other program or servuce.  So, I don't think anything can POSSIBLY go wrong, unless you screw it up.

You sound like my boss :)

qwaletee, what does murphy's law say about that single line that neowolf219 picked out?
And some call him an optimist!

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Yes! THere is one! PERFORMANCE!

I recommend, untill you are absolutely sure your server can actually handle the load of Domino Server + ADS, go fo it. Technically, no hitches!

If you are small enough to think your Domino box should share duties as PDC, then you probably don't have enough of a network to really have your PDC flush resources.

All valid points.  I appreciate everyone's opinion.  Will close this out and post again when install takes place.  Look for something in this area around the 12th of May if I run into any issues.  Thanks again for your time.
