We have a forest that has been adprep /forestprep'd to 2003 R2, I checked. The domain in question is a 2000 domain. Currently all domain controllers throughout the forest are 2000, but some R2 will be added later in the year (to another domain). I have to add some "new" 2003R1 DC's (the servers do not have r2 licenses) to a domain and want to know :

Which version of adprep/domainprep should I use the r1 version or the r2 version? Or doesn't it matter?

The forest and domains are at 2000 native level

I will then be preping forest for Exchange 2003 (we have Exchange 2000) at the moment
