Question: We are currently running a Windows 2000 Mixed mode environment. We are currently building a Windows 2008 domain in an entirely new forrest. We need to be able to create a trust between the two seaparate forrests.
Question: What do I need to do to make this happen? I keep getting mixed responses on how these trusts work. Some responses I hear are that if you put the forest functional level at 2008, then you cant add any sub domains in the forrest that have domain controllers less than 2008. Which I am fine with that because we plan to go full 2008 in this environment.
But to move users over to the new domain, I need resources accessible from both the Windows 2000 mixed domain and the Windows 2008 domain. Does this mean that in order to create a trust between two separate forests (Windows 2000 mixed and Windows 2008) that I need to set a lower forest level and then set it higher once I break the trust?
Any help would be appreciated.
