I have to create a new BDC (old  BDC dying fast).  My PDC is running 2000 Server, and I want to buy the new BDC with 2003 Server pre-installed.  Can these DC's run concurrently on the network with different OS's.

    Accepted Solution

    Absolutely... 2003 comes as a 2000 compliant OS by default. Only after you have eliminated the last 2000 unit you can elevate the active directory functionality to 2003.
