Going Native!

Ok I currently have 1 DC that is 2k3.  Multiple 2000 servers that are not DCs.  I have two linux servers that are used for databases.  When the books say all servers must be 2k3 before upgrading to 2k3 native mode do they mean all servers or just DCs?

    Just the DCs.  Go for it.

    Thanks for the points.  Only word of caution I would give is that you cannot go back, so be sure you aren't going to be needing 2000 DC's for any reason again.
