    We have a mixed 2012r2 ,2008r2 and 2003 server. Our 2003 server crashed and cannot be brought to live.

    I was wondering how do I raise the DFL and FFL since 2003 is our main DC.

    Hope anyone can advice


    You’ll need to do a metadata cleanup, seize the roles (your 2003 DC must never be brought online) and then you can Raise the DFL and FFL.

    You can do that by following this, https://www.petri.com/raising-windows-server-2008-active-directory-domain-and-forest-functional-levels

    Just as a side note i wouldn’t attempt this until you are 100% happy that your AD structure is working correctly and replication, et al is all working correctly.
