Hi All,
I've seen that you should NOT add a Windows server 2012 R2 domain controller to a domain which has exchange 2003 running - as it will break exchange.

I would just like confirmation that it is OK to add a Windows server 2012 R2 member server (also running hyper-v) on the same domain with exchange 2003 without any issues.

thanks

That's fine. The only reason a 2012 R2 DC breaks exchange is because of the way exchange talks to a DC. Since exchange doesn't need to talk to member servers, no underlying architecture changes occur as far as exchange is concerned.
