How will upgrading a 2003 domain to a 2008 domain affect the users, will changes need to be made at workstations?
Posted on 2012-04-11
We have a small 2003 network with a file/print server as the domain controller, a 2005 SQL server and a 2003 terminal server. We would like to upgrade the network to a 2008 Active Directory domain with a new 2008 domain controller and upgrade or replace the current 2003 domain controller.
After the domain upgrade to 2008 we would like to have 2 - 2008 domain controllers hosted on two file/print 2008 servers, a 2005 SQL server and a 2003 Terminal server.
Currently the 60+ workstations are approximately 50% XP and 50% Windows 7.
In the upgrade process will we need to make any workstation changes?
