Raise Operations Master

Our servers are all running 2008 r2.  Domain is at 2003 level still.
Exchange 2010 at sp2.

Any issues to upgrade & raise Ops Master?

Thanks

Our servers are also W2008R2 and we use Exchange 2010 SP1. We raised to W2008R2 domain level some time ago without any problems. You might have a look at this AD support matrix for Exchange 2010 under section Supported Active Directory Environments.

No you should'nt have any problems, i raised my level immediately prior to our first Exchange 2010 installation but even then.. you'll be fine.

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

AD recycle bin might be quite helpful. In some environments the DFS changes come to mind. This Technet article Understanding AD Functional Levels seems to be comprehensive about the different levels.
