When raising the domain and forest function level from 2003 to 2008 and I have TRUSTS in place, do the domains I have Trusts with have to have their Domain Controllers at 2008 as well or will their 2003 Domain Controller still function with our Trust?


Thank you

Going to 2008 DFL and FFL will not affect the trusts witn 2003 and 2008.  They will continue to function with no issues.

Thanks

Agree with above comment. Regardless of the domain/forest functional level Trusts will not be compromised.
