I am transitioning our ad 2003 to 2008 and we have several domains we trust with and one of them is still server 2000 sp4 AD. We have a 2 way trust that is working now, but when I transition over I'm afraid it will not.

Have you thought about going to 2008 R2 at this point?

Thanks

Agree with Mike, if it was NT4 then the answer would be no, the trust shouldn't be effected with the upgrade.

Yes,,,sorry the title says 2008R2 but in the body it does not. I will be upgrading to 2008r2 then eventually will upgrade the 2000 server to 2008r2.

Okay I am transitioning this weekend and was trying to think of anything I might be missing.

Thanks

Glenn has a good list of things/gotchas http://blogs.technet.com/b/glennl/archive/2009/08/21/w2k3-to-w2k8-active-directory-upgrade-considerations.aspx

You probably won't run into any but you can take a look at those KBs

Are you good for the transition steps (i.e. adprep32 and the other steps).  

Thanks

Mike

Never got a chance to see if it worked. The migration failed starting over from scratch with the new server and a virtualized ad from backup.
