Hi,

Could anyone confirm whether it's safe to move up to 2008 Functional Level in AD DS when the network still has XP clients (not Vista or 7).

You can raise the functional level . But some of the new features available with this DFL may not be available on XP. for eg:Advanced Encryption Standard (AES)
