On windows 2003 r2 domain controller I run gpresult and I get something I am unsure of if it should be or not.

Domain Type:                        Windows 2000

This is a full 2003 forest with no 2000 servers.
Do I have a problem?

although I have just run this on a sbs domain controller running 2003 and got the same result... maybe worrying over nothing, but a definitive answer would be good.

Start "Active Directory Domains and trusts", then right click on your domain and change the domain function from mixed 2000/2003 to 2003 only.

well gpresult out put does not reflect the domain or forest functional level. it shows the type which could be winNT or Win2000 and windows 2000 type applies to both win 2000 as well as win 2003. as long as you have checked the domain and forest functional level its fine.
