Server 2003 & Windows 2000 Pro

Hi There

I am planning to upgrade our system at the end of the year to Server 2003. My question is, with having Server 2003 on 3x servers and windows 2000 pro on our workstations. Are there any issues with that at all that i should know about before hand?

Thanks for all your help with the FTP setup and cisco pix 501 settings.  You guys saved me backside.

I am very impressed with your service and response time, there should be more of you out there in the world.

No problems with running 2003 Server with 2000 clients.

If you're already running a Windows 2000 Domain you will have to upgrade the Schema to handle 2003 before you can promote one to Domain Controller.

Please let me know if you need any further details on that.

chris-dent is correct... no problems...

one of the issues you may notice is when applying group policies... windows 2003 has many more options and settings in group policy that can only be applied on windows xp workstations...
