Exchange 2007 sp3

I currently have an exchange server with service pack one installed and i am trying to evaluate whether or not to install sp3 and also the best way to go about doing so.  I am under the impression that you can install SP3 without installing sp2 first (go straight to sp3 from sp1).  Is this true?  Also i am somewhat gun shy because of the prep for active directory.  I currently have three domain controllers, one is server 2008 and the other two are 2003 R2 servers.  Are the changes to active directory schema in addition to the changes made when i introduced the 2008 DC?  Does anyone know of any issues with AD after the prep for SP3?

Thanks Gentlemen!

Yes, you can migrate from SP1 to SP3

There are no known issues with the schema changes included within the SP
You can test the schema changes by following the steps from this article

I am currently setting up a test environment with one of my 2003 DCs and my exchange server.  I used vmware to convert the servers.  

I think i will install the service pack and use the document to see if i have any conflicts.  Do you think i am over looking anything in the test environment given the situation?

Thanks endital1097!  I appreciate the help.

no, i've worked with numerous environments where sp3 has been deployed and have not come across any issues with the directory following installation

installation of any update is always recommended in a lab environment first
