Exchange 2010 and Active Directory update

Hi, I had a vendor come in and give me a quote to upgrade my Exchange 2003 to exchange 2010. I currently run server 2003 R2 on my network and have 14 Domain controllers.

The vendor mentioned if we go to Exchange 2010 we would want to upgrade my AD also. Not sure why we need to upgrade AD or how we would do that.

Any ideas or is she blowing smoke at me?

Part 2 is we are planning on upgrading to office 2010 for all my computers, should we do that first or do the exchnge upgrade first?

You must to prepare AD for new features in Exchange 2010. Maybe this guide would help you: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa997914.aspx

An active directory update is not required as long as all your domain controllers are 2003 and newer, exchange 2010 requires native mode 2003 so no. 2000 dcs are tolerated. A part of that exchange 2010 recommends the use of 64 bits dcs but it is not a must
