We have exchange server 2003 installed and it is on our domain controller. Now we have another server running windows server 2008.

If we were to install MS exchange server 2007 on the windows 2008 server will would it affect us and will it cause any issues with exchange server 2003 as they are in the same domain.

Windows server 2003
XEON 3.0GHZ/2MB x 2
146GB SCSI ULTRA320 (10, 000RPM) x 4 (RAID 10)

Windows server 2008
XEON 2.0GHZ x 4
1.5TB SCSI x 6 (RAID 5)
