As part of the prep for my migration to Exchange 2010 from Exchange 2003, I will need to upgrade the functional level of EXCHANGE from mixed mode to native mode.

I really haven't found too much information on any gotchas with doing this, but at this point would it be safe to assume that upgrading this FL doesn't have any effect on anything assuming that I only have a single Exchange 2003 server at this point?

With no other Exchange servers, switching to native mode should be a non-event.

As long as you don't have any Exchange 5.0 or lower servers in your environment, there aren't any issues with changing to Native Mode.
