Exchange 2003 Migration

Setup is as follows:

Server1: Windows 2003 Domain Controller
Server2: Windows 2000 Domain Controller, Exchange 2000

I will be swinging to Exchange 2003 on a new box so I can get Exchange off of my domain controller.

Is there any issue with running the Exchange 2003 /domainprep /forestprep on my Exchange 2000 Server since it is also the DC that is the schema master of the domain?

There would be no issues running the above commands on the DC but just make sure that you don't run the commands immediately after one another. run one command then wait for few minutes and then run the other command

Thanks guys.

I'm planning on getting it installed and just moving the mailboxes gradually over 2 weeks or so, that way I won't need to re-configure any of the Outlook Clients.
