I manage a domain that is part of a forest. At the hub site, i removed the 2003 DC's and replaced them with 2008 R2 DC's. on the sites, 12 of them i still have 2003 DC'S running. Now I have an influx of account lockouts. How do i fix this? Can 2008 and 2003 work well together, Are the gpo's compatible.
ds001 is the is the pdc emulator and rid master, ds002 is the infrastructure master, bot are global catalogs.

sometime promoting a new DC will change the domain password policy.  It has mostly happened to me with SBS servers.  2003 and 2008 and 2008 R2 can all work together.  with no problems.  One thing that I have seen happen is the password policy changes,  (Get s more restrictive, whatever) and theri password expire because it no longer fits the security minimums.  their smart phones keep trying to log in to the domain to get email , and bingo, they are locked out.

All the accounts seem to be locking out on ds001, which was the last dc i added to the hub site
