upgrading Windows 2003 domain with Exchange 2007 to Windows Server 2008 DCs

I'm running DCs on Windows Server 2003.  A few months ago we went through the process of upgrading from Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2007.  Exchange 2007 is running in a dedicated Windows Server 2008 cluster.

I'm about to install Windows Server 2008 DCs.  I have the doccumentation provided by MS about upgrading a 2003 domain to 2008.  Is there anything I should look out for since we're now running Exchange 2007?

I'm just wondering if the upgrade from a 2003 domain to a 2008 domain will be made any more complex since we've now got Exchange 2007.  Or will Exchange 2007 be basically agnostic to the upgrade?

Exchange doesn't care. As long as you take the usual precautions when removing domain controllers, such as restarting the Exchange System Attendant shortly after removing the DC that Exchange is using, Exchange 2007 is fine.
