When I opened ADUC and tried to raise the level I got this

Current Domain function level is Windows Server 2003

The doamin is at the hightest level

Am I running native or mixed mode can you tell from my first post? if not what can I do to proove it?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

From the LDP result i can see that your Domain level is 2003 but your forest functional level is mixed as it says forestFunctionality: 0 = ( DS_BEHAVIOR_WIN2000 );

I think you need to raise your forest level to Native from Mixed
You need to goto Active Directory Domain and Trust and then you have to raise your forest functional level from mixed to Windows 2003 Native.

Might Be the following link help you for your transition for Exchange from 2000 to 2007

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa996719%28EXCHG.80%29.aspx

Once you successfully Transit your exchange server to 2007 you can Raise your Forest functional level to Windows 2003 Native.

You don't need to take the Windows 2000 server offline as it is only a member server. But if you're changing the forest functional level, that means that you cannot have or implement (even later on) a DC running Windows 2000 in your forest, assuming that you have more than one domain. Ever! If you're not running any Windows 2000 DCs then go right ahead.
