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

We started with 6 2003 server domain controllers and have slowly been migrating to 2008 R2. Currently changed out 4 of the 2003 to 2008 R2. We have been runing this way for over a year without any problems. We now have the PDC on the Server 2008 R2. We plan to replace the last two 2003 controllers this summer and go Native 2008 R2.

There should not be an issue to run 2008r2 as a member server. If you want a 2008r2 DC then there are a few more things to watch out for.

    Depending on what you want to use the w2k8 server for so you might want to check requirements for what you plan to do. I had an issue with replication so had to raise the Domain Functional level as you also need at least another w2k8 server if you consider things such as RODCs Regards NMM
