Migrating Domino 6.01 from NT domain to Win2003 domain

We are currently running Domino 6.01 on Windows 2000 servers in an NT domain. We will be migrating to a Windows 2003 domain; the Domino servers will remain on Windows 2000 servers. Where can I find information about what I need to be aware of? (I am the LAN admin, not the Domino admin.) The Domino admin tells me there is nothing to worry about.
Your Domino administrator is correct. Domino does not care at all what operating system it runs on or what domain it is in. It is completely independent of those restrictions. As long as it has IP connectivity and is properly configured on the server, it will be fine. Since your servers are not changing, other than moving to an AD Forest, you should have nothing to fear. Now, obviously this should be done as a scheduled change with proper backups and the like taken, but you will not see any issues caused by Domino in this move.
