Hello,

We have Exchange5.5 server that is member of Windows2003 domain, if we go native on AD would that have any affect on Exchange enviroment?  We dont have any NT BDC's left, old NT domain is retired.
Maybe some MS KB articles showing that it will not have any effect on it would help.

Thanks

there are native and mixed modes for exchange and their are native and mixed modes for AD... don't get these confused as they are totally separate.  It will be safe to switch AD to native mode as long as all of your DCs are 2003.  Be VERY carefull when switching this though... as domains cannot be switched from native back to mixed.
