We are planning to transition to a new 2008 R2, Exchange 2010.  Unforunetely I can not upgrade the AD to the minimum requirement of 2003 native due to the a 2000 server as one of the DC.  This 2000 server also is the exchange server 2003.  So, i need to get rid of the server 2000 so I can get the AD to 2003 or better for the exchange 2010 implementation.  

Can you upgrade the OS of an exchange server / DC from server 2000 to 2003?  Will this break the AD or Exchange?
