I currently have a Server 2008 domain. I am planning to install some 2012 servers and Exchange 2013, along with SQL 2012 (Each on dedicated servers).
I have installed a 2012 STD VM to test and after join ing it to the existing domain I noticed the mapped drives (via GPO Logon scripts) do not map. Additionally my HOME directory does not map either.
My question is should I upgrade the entire domain (AD) to Server 2012 before I migrate to Exchange 2013 and SQL 21012 if I plan on running these applications on a 2012 Server? How can I get my drives to map?
And basically, what is best practice for this type of scenario?
