    I currently have a Server 2003 Active Directory domain environment. I would
    like to introduce Terminal Server 2008 into that environment.

    Are their any incompatibility issues I should be concenred about between
    TS2008 and AD2003?

    Do I have to upgrade my 2003 AD domain controllers in order to run TS2008?

    Any information you can provide is greatly appreciated.

    So if I understand you correctly, having the mixed environment will not
    restrict me from doing anything that would potentially be offered in the
    native 2008 AD/2008 TS environment.

    Is that a correct statement?

    They can coexist, no problem.
    No. To configure GPO's for the 2008 TS you have to run GPMC included in RSAT
    from a Vista machine or server 2008, so you have full access to the policies.
    2008 has Remote server administration tools as a feature to install.

    Download RSAT for Vista here:
    RSAT 32bit:

    RSAT 64bit:

    Then open Control Panele, Programs and features, Turn windows features on
    or off, check the tools you like under "Remote Server Administration Tools"
    No, only if you add 2008 DC's you have to upgrade the schema not the 2003
