I currently have Windows 2003 Server on our domain controller and SQL server 2008. All our clients are Windows 7. We are upgrading our SQL box. The question I have is if we upgrade the SQL box to Windows 2008 or 2012, will that become an issue if we leave the domain controller as a 2003 Server. Does it allow a hybrid enironment?
Is there any benefit also to upgrading to SQL 2012?
To me, it seems like these upgrades are unnecessary and maybe we should just stick to our old 2003 Server with SQL 2008.
Your thoughts on the matter are appreciated!
