    After raising the domain and forest functional levels from Windows 2000
    native to
    windows 2003 server is it best to reboot the domain controller and other
    servers ?

    I have done this many times. It has never prompted for a reboot and I
    have never encountered any problems with not rebooting.

    In fact, most recently I did this prior to installing Exchange 2007 and
    did not reboot between raising the functional level and installing
    Exchange and still no issues.

    So, a definitive answer, I'm not sure. I would imagine if it were
    necessary Microsoft would prompt you for a reboot.. hell, they do half
    the time when it isn't necessary.
