Good morning all,

Can anyone tell me a safe and quick way to add a Windows 2008 R2 DC to a Windows 2003 domain/forest (functional level). Unfortunately my predecessor had already raised the domain/forest level and I've been trying to look up a good way to add my DC. Everywhere I read it says my domain has to be 2000 native functional level in order to add a 2008 DC.
I'm hoping my solution does not require seizing the roles...

Any help is welcome.
