Experts,

I am setting up a new domain controller on windows 2012.  On a separate box I will install exchange 2010.    When I install the Active directory, what forest level should be selected?

Would it be ok if i select windows 2012 forest level?   or do I need to select a lower forest level?

Thank you

Exchange 2010 is currently not supported on Windows 2012. It will not be so until Exchange 2010 SP3 is released next year.
Therefore you will have to use Windows 2008 R2 for the host.
I would also suggest leaving the domain/forest at Windows 2008 R2 level.

However, at the moment, Windows 2012 domain controllers are not listed on the system requirements matrix, probably because there is no support until SP3.

Simon.
