Hi gurus,

I'm installing a brand new Exchange 2000 server to migrate our present Exch
5.5 mailboxes onto.  This will be part of a new Win2K domain (which is
already up and running).

Q1:  Shall I set up the server as a DC so it won't have to constantly verify
credentials against the existing DC server?  I know there is no need for
Exchange 2k to run on a DC, but what is your opinion?  Exch 2k on Win2K DC
or Exch 2k on Win2k Member Server?

Q2:  Service Packs:  Right now all my Win2k servers are happily running SP2,
shall I install Win2k SP3 on this new server straight away or stick with
SP2?  Also, which Exch 2k SP would you recommend installing?
