I have a server 2003 domain controller (only one) and a separate exchange server 2003 on server 2003.

I would like to have 2 domain controllers on my domain and am thinking of running DCPROMO on the exchange 2003 server 2003 machine.

What are the issues involved with making an existing exchange server a domain controller?

The exchange server is a Dell Power Edge 860 with a 3ghz pentium 4 processor and 4gb of ram.  There is plenty of empty HD space.

Thanks for any suggestions you may have regarding this, either pro or con.
