Unity 4.2 and Changing Domain/Exchange Functional/Mode Levels


Our Windows environment is entirely Windows 2000 running Exchange 2000 cluster as well. I would like to change the domain functional level to "Native Mode - Windows 2000." And then also I'd like to convert our Exchange 2000 cluster from mixed mode the native mode. My question is first is there any particular order in which I should perform this?? Should I change the domain level/mode first, and then exchange?? Or does it matter?? Then lastly I'd like to know if I need to perform anything on the Unity 4.2 side before making these changes to the domain or exchange. Also has anyone else gone through this process, and have you had any issues pertaining to Unity 4.2??

Thanks for your time and Help!!


Re: Unity 4.2 and Changing Domain/Exchange Functional/Mode Level

Unity should not care if you are going to Native Mode in Windows or Exchange. As long as you are not changing Permissions on accounts, or Exchange orgs. It gets a little trickry if you were upgrading to Exchange 2003 or Windows 2003, because then the Schema will change and Unity will need to be updated.

I would double check with TAC though.
