Windows 2003 Enterprise server and Windows 2000 Advanced Server

I'm about to upgrade a PDC from Win2K Server to Windows 2003 Server.  The BDC is Win2K Advanced Server.  Any nuances with the Advanced Edition that would cause problems that the standard Win2K Server wouldn't?  I'm OK with the prep necessary to upgrade the PDC and domain, but just wondering if the Advanced version will cause any extra steps or headaches.

TIA
Scott

Apart from being loads more expensive, the EE allows features such as SQL clustering and a few other high-end things like that.  If you don't need the extra features, I would save the cash and go with the standard edition.  If you need some of these features, then I guess you have to go with it.

There's no difference whatsoever between the two in terms of support for AD, just added support for clustering, more RAM, more processors, etc as jacksonps4 says
