    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

  2. 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

  4. Hello Phil,

    The same applies as for the domain functional level.
