Active Directory 2003 Upgrade Functionality Level to 2008
Posted on 2014-01-17
OK so we are currently at a 2003 AD Functionality level . We need to raise it to 2008. My understanding is the biggest Pitfalls are
1. Make sure all Domain Controllers are 2008 or higher OS
2. Make sure we no longer have Windows 2000 Servers on the domain?
All my domains Controllers are 2008 R2. I have 6 remaining Win 2000 Servers but they haven't been access in over a year so I'm going to Spin them down. I believe all I have to do to raise the AD Level is click the drop down and select 2008. Are there any other disasters I should be on the lookout to avoid? Any prerequisites I need or should beforehand?
Thanks In Advance!
