  • Add 2003 DC to 2008 Network

    Anything I need to know about adding a 2003 server as domain controller with an existing 2008 DC?

    Here are the details:

    network was: 2 x win 2000 servers, only one of the win2k servers was a DC.

    both the win2k servers have been replaced by a single 2008 server which has been promoted to an AD server. The win2k DC has been demoted and both win2k servers have been removed the network.
    this leaves only 1 DC...
    I am bringing in a 2k3 server due to having an app that is incompatible with 2008 and plan on promoting it to a DC.

    The forest functional level is still at windows 2000 native as I did not want to change it until I knew what we were going to do for a second dc.

      You cant add 2003 DC's to 2008 Domain Function level Domains.

      thats why you need to post your Domain function level.

          if your forest and domain functional levels are still at 2000 native, then you should be ok to bring a 2003 domain controller in, and you could even increase it to 2003 native mode I beleive.

          However - if you have already bumped it up to 2008 native, your SOL
