    Do you like to add Win 2000 DC to Win 2003 DC's ? What is the forest/domain mode? (There may times that you cant add Win 2000 DC to Win 2003 Forest/Domain)

    Also, please note that old version DC like 2000 doesnt support new option like RPC over HTTP so you may need to configure the Exchange to use new DC+GC.

      well currently there is just one 2k server with AD, as i am new here, they have no one who works with windows, so said can you add a backup domain.

      I havent done this in 2k before, but in 2k3 many times.
      just a single domain, no forest or anything.
      I am going to be migtrating to 2003 but not till the end of a large project.

      we dont use exchange, everything else is linux based solutions, but have have window users, and this is all the domain is for.

      or, could i just install a 2003 server and add that as a secondary controller?

        have completed this by adding a 2003 secondary domain to the 2k one, all has replicated well.
