current server: running windows Small Business Server 2003 "2003"
new server: windows 2012 standard "2012"
Challange; trying to join the 2012 to the 2003 domain and make it BDC.
Error; "the forest function level is windows 2000. to install a windows server 2012 domain controller the forest functional level must be windows server 2003 or higher"
What I already did:
Clicked Active Directory Domains and Trusts , and then clicked Raise Forest Functional Level .
Now it shows "current domain functional level windows server 2003" this domain is operating at the highest functional level".
Why does 2012 still think that 2003 is running in 2000 mode?
Any help would be appreciated.
