Windows 7 on a Windows Server 2003 Domain

probiotec used Ask the Experts™
Hi All,

Currently we are looking to implement a number of Windows 7 machines into our 2003 AD.

Now other than not being able to control the new W7 features, will i lose any functionality with my old group policies? or will W7 know what to do with all of them?

I have a feeling Microsoft would have developed it to do so, but cannot find any information.

Any help would be great.
