    I'm preparing to add a 2003 Domain Controller to a 2000 Domain very soon, if anyone has any tips that may help please let me know.

    I've already read this: http://www.petri.co.il/windows_2003_adprep.htm
    and this: http://www.tech-geeks.org/geeklog/article.php?story=20041223002509333

    but if anyone has any other info I'd love to hear from you.

    Si :)

    Well I have carried out this and so far have not had any problems, just making sure the changes have replicated to other DC's on the network was one thing to take into consideration.

    I wouldn't think there'd be any problems with this action, Si. The only issues would be that certain types of trust relationships and other functions possible under 2003 wouldn't be supported in a 2000 domain. Other than that, it should act like any other DC in your domain.

    We did this a month or so ago. Just running the forest/domain prep things seemed to do the job and we haven't had any problems. Hope it all goes well m8 :biggrin
