    I was wondering if you can have Windows XP x64 workstations connected to a
    Windows 2000 Server. What are the compatibility issues? We are thinking of
    upgrading our CAD workstations to x64 because of memory limitations, and I
    just needed to know if it would cause other issues.

    I've seen nothing showstopping so far, but I'm only using my Win2K server
    for file, print and authentication. Haven't messed with how x64 interacts
    with AD yet...

  4. yes, you most certainly can connect to a Win2k Server domain. You may have
    some printer issues (but then, you could have those anyway), but if your
    printers are addressable via TCP/IP, those should be fairly easily
    resolvable, assuming the drivers are available.

    We have a few x64's and dual Opterons on our 2000/2003 network and we have no
    issues at all.
