    Hello, I have an AD environment with 50 sites and around 100 domain
    controllers. All DC installed with Windows 2003 server.
    Currently Domain Functional level is 2003 and Forest Functional level is
    2000. Planning to raise Forest functional level to 2003.

    - To have forest functional level will enable all forest functions but just
    want to know will it better the replication between domain controllers?
    - Is it possible to roll back to 2000 forest functional level once it has
    been raised to 2003?

    Will you be more specific?

    You cannot roll back to 2000 forest level once it has been raised to 2003.

    Thank you Keshav for the reply post.

    Ya, cannot roll back to 2000 forest functional level once raised to 2003.
    Just want to know if it can be roll back by modifying registry? metadata?

    Or maybe an Authorized Restore of database will do the trick?
