Native Mode Help - 4.Nov.2004 10:42:00 PM

am planning an install of the first ex2k server on a mixed mode 2000 AD. That is, I still have some NT workstations and an NT backup domain controller. Im getting mixed readings about having to update my AD to "Native Mode" before installing exchange. Could someone tell me if I really have to upgrade the AD domain controller to native mode or not? I would have to do ALOT of work to decommission my NT BDC and if I dont have to, that would be great. As far as I can see, the only thing that Native mode would give me is "universal groups" but it still may work.
Thanks in advance for any replies for this one...
Mike

Hi
All servers have to be 2000 before you can go native. You have to remove the bdc's. Member servers are fine as long as you can load the AD client. If a member server performs production services rather up it to 2000.

You can stau in mixed mode with no problems untill all mail servers are done. Native is not required since you cannot return.
