    We have a Windows 2000 server domain with AD active and we are planning to
    add a Windows 2003 server (standard edition) with Exchange 2003 Server
    (Enterprise Ed.). What mode should we configure our domain?

    Thanks in advance.

    Thanks. So, our Windows 2000 domain should remain in Win 2K native mode and
    when we plan to upgrade the dcs decide to switch to full win 2k3 mode or stay
    in Win 2k native mode. Does this make sense?

    We are going to upgrade Exchange first and then do the road upgrade our dc
    to Win 2K3.

    Yep. Reading the second paragraph first, if thats your objective then your
    outline in the first paragraph is how i'd do it.

    Just to be clear, there shouldn't be any problems with either process, and
    of course you'd take a backup before undertaking any major work, its simply
    a case of doing two complex and major tasks together increases the chances
    that something might go wrong and very definately would make it harder to
    figure out what happened exactly if that did happen.
