I have a legal copy of server 2k3 but the one I have is 2k3r2 and what I have on my servers is 2k3 standard, don't ask I inherited it. When I tried to install 2k3r2 on the new server it basically told me I needed to upgrade my AD on 2k3 for this to work, but I wasn't sure about doing that. Any thoughts
