Forest and AD Prep on W2K8 Server - Eval download
Posted on 2011-09-14
I am just about to put my first 2008 R2 server on the network (all existing servers are W2K3). I intend to make this new server an AD controller for the domain.
I need to prep the domain before doing so, but my media for the new server is 64 bit, whereas all my existing servers are 32 bit.
I have downloaded, from the MS download site, an eval copy of W2K8 Enterprise 32 bit. My 2008 server is just R2 Standard.
Does anyone think there would be any issue using the ADPREP, etc. from that download to prep the existing domain for 2008 AD controllers?
I can't think of any reason why I couldn't use that CD, but wanted to see if anyone else had any thoughts, or have run into something.
