    Hey Guys,

    I've recently migrated our corporate domain from 2000 to 2003.
    The migration went smootly and everything's been fine so far. The 2000 DC's have been decommisioned.

    Now the corporate domain is a seperate domain within our production domain's fortest (production.com is our forest root domain). This domain... is still running on 4 windows 2000 domain controllers, it has not yet been migrated.

    My question is: Can I raise the functional level of the corporate domain which no longer has any 2000 domain controllers to 2k3 FL, even though my forest root is still Win2k Native FL?

    Or should I migrate production.com first before changing ANY functional levels.

    Thanks!

    From what I'm reading there you should not change to Windows Server 2003 Functional Level, as you will not be able to communicate.

    Best advise, upgrade them and then first then change the Functional Level.

    All of that taken from the 70-294 book, I'm reading currently :)

    Ah I'm only on the 293... good thing I asked first LOL.
    Can't say I'm surprised though, thanks!
