hello all,

If i add a 2012 r2 child domain to a 2008r2 forest. is there anything changed at schema level ? or any other level ?

when i run the wizard at 2012 r2 to add the child domain at one point it says "to install this domain controller the wizard need to perform....."    forest and schema preparation .

I want to know if it has impact on anything at the root domain.

Yes, there are changes that mist occur to the, root domain so the forest can support new DCs, even if they are in separate child domains.

But this would be the same if i was installing a 2008r2 child domain right ?

most important is what can i expect?  only a schema update with no side effects in the root domain.
this is not a problem ofcourse.

It is a schema update. As always with a change there is risk, even if only minimal. Backups are recommended.
