We have an SBS 2003 server, would like to add a 2012 server as a member server. I know I can add a 2008 server but we'd rather invest in current software. From what I'm reading it can be done. Can someone verify that and are there any special installation/configuration issues to be aware of? The current server will be replaced but not for a year, in the meantime we need to move their database to another server.
Thanks

you are fine making a 2012 server member of a 2003 SBS domain; it is supported
