finally going native

We FINALLY turned off our last NT 4.0 domain controller a few months back
and are now looking to move our Windows 2003 domain from mixed to native
mode. I KNOW management is going to have a problem with the idea that there
is no rollback plan for this move.

Anyone ever encountered a problem with moving to 2003 Native? We are a
single domain, single site infrastructure. Can't really get more simple.

Thanks,

Phil

Hello Phil,

If you have no earlier OS DC then Windows 2003 you can raise the functional
levels. Personal i have never had problems. Before starting check with support
tools dcdiag /v, netdiag and repadmin /showrepl for errors on the DCs.

Best regards

Thanks for ther reply. We did the domain functional level upgrade today.
Can you comment on what should be done to the Forrest Functional Level,
which still sits at 2003 Interim? Should this be done as well, and if so
any worries there?

Thanks,

Phil

Hello Phil,

The same applies as for the domain functional level.
