I'm about to raise my domain to the 2008 domain functional level.  i have read some articles so it seems pretty straight forward.
one quick question though.

i have a trust relationship with another domain.  we are not part of the same forest.  will raising to a 2008 functional level mess with my trust relationship at all.  the reason i ask is because one time we broke the trust and it was a real bad time trying to reestablish it.
also...
any other pitfalls i should be aware of?

What OS/version is running on that other domain.  If it is Windows NT (hopefully not) then you could run into some issues; since I'm assuming it is not I won't go into those; the MS AD team addressed part of that in a Friday mailsack (see question about NT and 2008 R2 trusts)

If it is 2003 you Shouldn't run into any issues.

Thanks

Mike

Hi,

As per your command all your DC's are Win2008 also all servers are win2003 and win2008. So you can rise  domain functional level to Windows2008.
