most of your appz should be ok by the look of it, i would run through a couple of the less important servers as a trial first so you get used to the way the upgrade works

Hi,
I don't think anything (SQL wise) lower than SQL 2000 with SP3 will run on a 2003 server.

Make sure you add a 2003 DC first (try not to upgrade the existing DC so that you can back out easily if you hit problems).

Other than that it should be a straight, stick the disc in the drive and follow it through type upgrade.
