So, if I have Win Srv 2016 acting as DC and another non-dc server (eg: Windows Server 2008 R2) I can set my levels to 2016. Is that correct?? Thanks in advance! OssianModerator February 16, 2017 at 12:37 pm #191547 Yes – it is only the OS on the DCs that is important Author Posts Viewing 2 posts - 1 through 2 (of 2 total) You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
