DCs should only be DC and nothing else with the exception of SBS 2003.  The reality is it can, but best pratices says they should be separate.  Also from a pratical standpoint, to restart exchange you would have to kick everyone out of the network since you are restarting the DC as well.

Exchange servers do not need to be domain controllers (and shouldn't be)

Ok, great! I'm setting up a test migration from Exchange 5.5 to 2003. I already exported all of the PST's, I'm just getting prepared to install Exchange 2003 and then import each PST file.


Another question, I'll increase the points if necessary.

Can Outlook 2000 work with Exchange 2003?
