    We have 2 Windows 2000 server licenses sitting around and would like to use them if possible.

    Right now we only have one DC running on Server 2003.

    We will be adding another 2003 DC in short order but would like to know if there are issues adding a 2000 box to an existing 2003 Domain.

    We are running Exchange 2003 in a Cluster. The Cluster is connected to our NAS storage and runs our file sharing as well.

    As of right now the Domain is functioning but it is not in production. All the users still connect to a Novell 5.1 server for file sharing and Email.

    I’ve looked around for information on adding a 2000 server to an existing 2003 domain but I’ve had a lot of trouble comming up with anything.

    Would there be issues if the first 2003 DC died leaving only the 2000 DC up?

    If you are aware of some documentation please let me know. I’ve been searching for a couple days now and haven’t found much.
