I want to setup a trust between two forests. One forest is running 2000 Mixed mode Domain/Forest Function level

The new one is running 2008R2 Forest/Domain Function Level.

When creating a trust, what are the requirements for the function levels ? Was looking at Microsoft site/google, but couldn't find.

Hi,

Are both forests single-domain? If so, you don't
need to worry about creating a forest trust as it would have no
additional benefit anyway. A forest trust is useful when you have
two multi-domain forests and you want all domains in one/both forests to be trusted.
If it's two single domain forests, then an external trust will do the
same job as a forest trust anyway. You wouldn't have to raise/lower functional
levels to create an external trust. Create a two-way external trust and this should
allow the migration.

To be able to establish Forest trust between these forest you need to have at least Windows 2000 native mode (because 2008 doesn't support NT4 domains)

Windows 2000 native mode of Domain Functional Level, FFL can still be at Window 2000 mode.
