Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

The only time you would leave in mixed mode depends if your clients (users) are running on Windows 2000 and older as compared to XP and above. Also see if you have member servers running Windows 2000 or NT, if you do then stay with mixed, if not then go with native. If you are running XP, Vista, and Windows 7, then you should be able to go to native mode with no issues.

    Mixed mode is only required if you have any Domain Controllers 2000 or older. As long as all your DCs are 2003 and above, there are no problems.
