It is good to be paranoid.  For most people, the change isn't even noticed.
For clients that have SAMBA or other downlevel AD clients, you should be
prepared for upgrades or for them to stop working.

Your backout is to restore to a state prior to the change.  All of the DC's
would have to be restored to the state prior to the change.

Hi All

I am about to switch a W2k domain controller with e2k from mixed mode to
native mode. We have no NT4 DCs etc, my question is this, has process ever
gone wrong for anyone? 

If for some reason it does go wrong (I realise this is v.unlikely), will the
solution be to reinstall the DC and reinstall backup and this will bring me
back to the original state. 

I know that my domain is supposed to be running in native mode but I guess
its always better to be a bit paranoid.
