Windows 2000 Server Mixed Mode

By eboha ·
Recently upgraded a two server network (2 domain controllers and 20 clients) from NT Server to Windows 2000 Server. Am currently running network in Mixed Mode instead of Native Mode and see no ill effects. What are the pros and cons of continued useof Mixed Mode vs. changing to Native Mode?

The only reason to run in mixed mode is to allow the use of NT4 BDCs. Once you have converted your NT4 BDCs to Win2K, there is absolutely no benefit to run in mixed mode unless you foresee needing to run NT4 BDCs in the future.
