I am looking to bring a Windows 2008 Server in as a DC. I've gone through most of the research and understand updating the forest and domain schema to prepare for a 2008 DC. The existing forest / domain is at Windows 2000, mixed mode. Can I bring a Windows 2008 Domain Controller in a 2000 Mixed mode domain without increasing the level to 2000 Native? There are no plans for read-only DC's. We will be migrating from all 2000 to a mix of 2000, 2003, and 2008 domain controllers, with the final result being all 2008 domain controllers (~15 of them)
Thanks in Advance!
