Promoting an '03 server to a DC - Quick Question

We are running on a Windows 2000 SBS domain. This weekend I'm planning a promotion of one of our 2003 Standard servers to a DC. Everything has been prepped for the promo, but I'm curious if I need to be aware (cautios) of anything that I should do after I run DCPROMO. That's all. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks!

He can join another DC no problem.  It just can hold any of the FSMO roles.

You need to run Adprep against the 2000 domain before you join the 2003 server.

Adprep /forestprep

then

Adprep /domainprep

After this you should be fine.

You may need to make a tweak if you are running Exchange:

May I ask why that was chosen as the answer?  It really has nothing to do with what you were asking.
