    Windows 2008 Member Server on 2003 Domain

    We have a Windows 2003 domain and want to introduce a 2008 Member
    Server, mainly for testing. Will the 2008 server work happily with
    2003 DC's?

    Thanks for the feedback, I wasn't sure whether we had to have a 2008
    DC first but looks like this is not the case. I will give it a go and
    test to see how it integrates.

    We will be running a few instances of SQL 2005 at first and SQL 2008
    later on. I've seen that it is currently supported with a couple of
    minor issues that will not affect us.
