G'day experts

I know it's a real bad idea to promote or demote a 2003 Server once Exchange 2003 is installed but I have a 2003 with Exchange that is a DC but not currently not GC.  I'd like to make it a GC as there is only another single GC. Am I able to make this change without wrecking Exchange?

thanks inadvance

Hi robjeeves,
You bet.
Exchange will never even know that it happened... in fact... exchange might even like it as it is alway talking to the GC

Cheers!

If you already have exchange on a DC, then it MUST be a GC

Making the change will not be destructive
