Domain functional levels allow you to enable Active Directory features and functionality in the domain and forest for your network. Windows Server 2003 adds additional functionality based on the mode of the forest. When a new domain is created in a new forest, the functionality level for the domain is Windows 2000 mixed mode, and the functionality level for the new forest is Windows 2000 mode. When you upgrade the domain controllers in a forest, you can improve the functionality level to support further Active Directory features and functionality.
