Have verified installation of SBS2008 Rollup Update 6 but cannot use "Connect" wizard to connect a Windows 8.1 client to the SBS2008 domain.  Continually receive the error message that SBS2008 does not support the client OS.  Would really love a solution that doesn't require placing server or client at risk to make this migration work.

If it is really only an 8.1 PC, then you can't connect it to an AD domain. You need at least Windows 8.1 Pro (or ultimate or enterprise).

I've requested that this question be deleted for the following reason:

Discovered that the current version of Windows 8.1 is not Pro and cannot be joined to a domain.
