I'm about to extend the schema in our Server 2003 domain to introduce the first Server 2008 domain controller.  I've done alot of prep work (correct functional level, active-directory integrated DNS, back up system state, etc.), but I was wondering about our Exchange 2003 environment.  We're running Exchange 2003 with sp2.  Is there going to be any conflict with that after extending the schema and transferring FSMO roles to the 2008 machine?

We have 4 domain controllers in 2 sites.  Our office has 2 and the data center has 2 and also Exchange 2003 SP2 server
.
1 DC is 2008, 2 are 2008 R2, 1 is 2003 and Exchange works fine; one of the R2 DC's has the FSMO roles.

You should be fine.
