I'll start off with this:

http://blogs.msdn.com/b/spatdsg/archive/2007/03/15/vista-and-mandatory-profiles.aspx

My question is that when I move from SBS 2003 to Svr 2008 Data Center Edition AD environment, will these vista profiles keep the .V2 after the profile folder?

I didn't know if this was an issue w/ 2k3 AD's or if it's the same on 2k8.

Any other issues i should watch for?

It will if you already have a profile in place, it doesn't upgrade the old profile it creates a new one with a v2 extension.

Yes, the .V2 wil stay. It isn't an issue with AD at all, but with a change in the profile layout in the OS. The client sets the .V2, not the server, and the client OSs that support .V2 know to look for it automatically.

Will my xp users have profile issues when the dc is upgraded to a 2008 domain or will there be additional considerations for the xp profiles?
