My environment:

Two Windows 2000 DCs (one of them has Exchange 2000 on it)
Three Windows 2003 member servers. 
Two Windows 2003 R2 member servers.

My overall goal is to install Exchange 2003 on one of our Windows 2003 R2 Servers, replicate the public folders to the new server, and then move all the mailboxes.  Finally I'll remove the old Exchange server from the organization.  First I'd like to at least have a 2003 R2 DC in our native 2000 domain.

I found the following article:  http://www.msexchange.org/tutorials/Migrating-Exchange2000-Exchange-2003-Hardware.html

I've ran the inetorgpersonpreventl.ldf script and verified that the three Exchange attributes were modified.  I also ran adprep /forestprep and adprep /domain prep on the schema master successfully from a 2003 server disc.  Turns out though that in order to add a 2003 R2 server as a DC, you need to run adprep from the second disc for 2003 R2:  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/917385

I've also already ran setup /forestprep and setup /domainprep from the Exchange 2003 cd on our Exchange 2000 server (which is also a DC and schema master).

My question is, will I have any problems with Exchange if I now run adprep from Disc 2 of the 2003 R2 CD and then promote the R2 server to a domain controller?

WE have already run adprep from w2003 R2 on our existing 2003 domain with Exch 2003 and encountered no problems.
