Hi there,
our company wolud like to rise its DFL and FFL to W2k3.
We'have neither NT4 BDC (or PDC) nor W2k Domain Controller.
Just 4 w2k3 DCs with 1 Domain W2k Native and W2k Forest Functional Level.
So, everything seems quite easy but....We also have Exchange Ent Server 2003
Sp2 (on a 2-node Cluster W2k3 sp1 that's not a DC).
Could we face any problem raising up Forest and Domain?
I'm a little afraid about Schema....

Thanks in advance

Ivan Marrese
