Compatibility of server 2008 64bit with Server 2003 Domain Controller
Posted on 2009-04-04
I will be building an additional windows server for a network currently housing a single windows server 2003 standard edition.
The current server is used as a domain controller, Terminal Services, File Server, Application server.
The new server will offload the tasks of Application Server and Database Server with SQL Server Standard Edition.
My main question was in regards to whether or not to go to a windows server 2008 64bit. Are their any compatibility issues I would find with doing this compared to just joining another server 2003 server to the domain? I have no experience with server 2008 yet, as I have always used 2000/2003.
