Hello,

I have a windows 2003 sbs server.   Can I add a workstation to my network where the operating system is Windows 8?

Thanks,

Yes, Windows 8 will connect just fine to a Server 2003 domain, and you can then link your Domain Account(s) to a Microsoft Account to enable all of the Windows 8 online features.

Thanks

I have several Windows 8 and 8.1 machines connected to a 2003 domain.  They work just fine.  You can create/edit Windows 8 group policies with RSAT on Windows 8 (but not 8.1).

Koila, that is a totally different question, completely unrelated.
If really interested, create a new question.
