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.

And some call him an optimist!

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.
