Switching to Native Mode - Exch 2010 prep on a Exch 2003 network

Hello all,

The Exch 2010 Pre-Reqs ask me to change my 2003 Exchange to Native Mode.  When researching, it also says I need to restart the Info Store.

I am just checking to make sure that doing that change won't impact the operation of the Exch 2003 server.  I plan on still using that server for a couple more weeks while I transition everything.

Are there any concerns with switching to Native Mode?

You should not have any issues, mixed mode in 2003 allowed for Exchange 5.5 compatibility. Exchange 2007 and 2010 don't have mixed/native anymore.

As always a backup is recommended for changes, image based if possible.
