Hello, I am using W2K3R2 32bit on all domain controllers, and now for future
upgrade to windows 2008 R2 and I will add W2K3R2 64bit domain controllers to
the existing domain. They can cohabite 32 and 64 domain controllers? Any pre
install requirement?

Hello ccarmesim,

There is no problem to run different OS architectures in one domain.

Best regards

The only limitation is inability to use IFM-based promotion across the
platforms (i.e. promoting a x32-bit DC with x64-bit DC backup or vice
versa)...
