Hi,
I have a single domain running 2 W2k DC's and 1 W2K3 server running Exchange 2003.  I have 2 new server W2K3 member servers that I want to promote to DC.  After this is done I would remove the 2 W2K AD's and run with the 2 W2K3 AD's for a few weeks to ensure that everything is OK.  After 2 weeks I'd raise functionality on both W2K3 AD's.
Is this the correct path?  For some reason it seems to easy.
Thanks
Mario

Hi markto

Before promoting the new win2k3 DCs, you'd have to run adprep /forestprep & domainprep on your schema master DC to make sure the schema of your current forest is updated & is able to accomodate the new 2k3 DCs. Rest seems to be fine.
