Hi. I have a 2008 32 bit domain controller.  My domain functioning level is currently windows 2000 native.  
I have exchange 2010 on the network as well.  
Will raising the functioning level to 2008 break exchange 2010?

Thanks,

No.  You are safe doing that.

I've raised it from 2000 to 2003 to 2008 to 2012 and had no issues.

As always, make sure you have a good backup.
