Looking to migrate a 2003 server DC to 2012 essentials. I also have another server in the domain (app server) that I was going to upgrade to 2012 foundation.
I'm a little confused at the wording MS uses in the description of foundation at http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj679892.aspx
Must be the root domain controller in a domain that has no trusts at the root of the forest. This condition is temporarily allowed for migrations, but if persistent, the system will be forced to restart.
Looking for a little explanation to make sure Foundation will fit into the domain, not as a domain controller, but just as an app server.
