Q

Launching a Win2003 file/print server with NT4 DCs

Is it possible to launch a Windows 2003 file and print server with NT4 domain controllers? Our organization will not be migrating to AD until sometime in 2004, yet we have a mandate to migrate all non-DCs to Win2003 now.
Yes. You may use Windows 2000/2003 servers as print servers, DNS server, DHCP servers, WINS server, file servers –- basically anything except domain controllers or Remote Access Servers (RAS) in your NT 4.0 domain.
