I have a server 2000 on my network that is a member server running an application with SQL database. I want raise the domain functional level to 2003. Will this affect that member server?

IIS isn't an issue with that
not sure about that other application; just need to verify with the vendor though i doubt it will be an issue

functional levels are more of an issue with domain controllers (active directory features) and not member servers and applications

If your application server is installed on NT4, then you might face problem

But since you are using windows 2000 server member, it is fully compatible with up to 2008 R2 active directory and that functional level

So its need less to mention that with 2003 functional level any how your application will work
