2003 Domain Controller in 2000 Domain with Exchange 2003
Posted on 2007-10-17
We have one Windows 2000 DC, SP4. Its the forest Root and is the only domain controller, (worried, yes I am). We have a seperate server which is a 2003 box. This server has Exchange 2003 installed.
My query is when exchange was installed the setup would have ran a forest prep and domain prep ? Normally if I was adding a 2003 server as a backup DC and its the first time I would run foresprep and domain prep on the 2000 server first, then add the 2003 server onto the domain. So, in this case if I am now going to add a new 2003 DC to the domain should I just be able to dcpromo the new server without running forest and domain prep again because it was done when exchange was installed ?
