    I have a Windows 2003 domain set to Windows 2000 mixed level. I only have
    Windows XP client computers. I need to raise the functional level to
    "Windows Server 2003".

    - Will client computer experience changes?
    - Can I have problems logging in the domain after this operations?
    - Anything I should be aware (I don't have windows 2000 servers)?

    Thanks a lot
    K.

  2. Hello Kirsten,

    The functional levels only depend on OS version of the domain controllers
    not of the client machines. So if no earlier OS version on DC's exist you
    can safely do it.
