Well after discussing with management, we will be holding off on our domain migration until after we are fully migrated over to Exchange 2007.

Since 2007 requires a 2003 DC with Schema Role, I have to introduce a 2003 DC into the 2000 AD (2 AD Controllers) however it should be noted there is also a 2000 Exchange in addition to Exchange 2003 in the organization. I remember reading something about mangled attributes if you introduce them before hand, can anyone confirm please?

I understand that ADPrep is better for adding the 2003 DC in than what used to be available (was a 2 step process I think?)

Any help is greatly appreciated.
