I want to raise function level of 2000 native domain to 2003 native , are there any Exchange 2003 considerations that I must take into acct.  2 Exchange 2003 SP2 mail servers also double as domain controllers in my setup.

Hi ssimmons1,

No, the only thing you have to keep in mind is if you raise the domain (and/or forest) functional level to Windows Server 2003, you wont be able to add any new domain controllers that are running versions of Windows any earlier than Windows Server 2003 into that domain.

Cheers

So absolutely nothing to worruy about with the 20003 Exchange Servers being on 2003 domain controllers?

Hi,

No, raising the domain level will not influence your Exchange. In actual fact, you will active more features by upgrading your domain level!

Network clients can authenticate or access resources in the domain or forest without being affected by the Windows Server 2003 domain or forest functional levels. These levels only affect the way that domain controllers interact with each other.

Cheers
