We are currently running exchange 2000 in an Windows 2000 AD setup. Already have a number of 2003 member servers, and as soon as we put new hardware in the two branch offices that are running 2000 DCs, we want to upgrade to a Windows 2003 AD....but, for a variety of reasons, not upgrade to Exchange 2003 at this time.
Question: does Exchange 2000 play well with Windows 2003 AD? Do I need to make any changes to Exchange 2000 before, during or after a Windows 2003 AD upgrade? Any gotchas that I should watch out for/ take care of in advance?
Please don't post links to endless articles....I'd like the benefit of the experience of those with direct experience of this setup.
