Hi, we currently have a domain and a child domain. No NT or Exchange 5.5 servers. Just Win2000, 2003 and Exch2000 servers. Our child domain runs our SAP servers.  We also have a MS Certificate Authority server that handles only RADIUS authentications.
If we change our domain from mix to native mode, what can go wrong?   I really don't want to crash anything, especially our SAP.

What level are you at now and what are you trying to go to?   If you are going to 2008 R2 then there will be issues with Exchange 2000

See the Exchange supportability matrix http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff728623.aspx

Thanks

Not sure what you meant by "level".
We are trying to go to Exchange 2003 and possibly Exchange 2007 or later in the future when we move from Win2003 to Win2008 or newer.

Mixed and Native mode are for Windows not for SAP. I don't think it should create any issue for SAP.

It is good to give a check with SAP also.

Thks for the link but it only tells me what native and mix mode is about. Doesn't apply to us cause we have no NT or Exchange 5.x servers. Not what my original question was asking.
