I've added Windows 7 machines to 2003 domains heaps of times, no problem.

You should not have any problems with Windows 7 machines on a 2003 domain. You may have to test your log in scripts (map drives) and tweak group policy settings but things should work fine.

I have recently have deployed several new and upgraded Windows 7 machines on a 2003 (Mixed Mode!) domain.  No problems at all.

I can also confirm that we're using a lot of Windows 7 Enterprise PC's with our Windows Server 2003 Native Domain.

Thank you so much for a quick response. I am assuming that Win7 ultimate is good for domain based system ?

It just has more features enabled - our IT Admins are running Ultimate just fine.
