Hello Everyone,

We have a SWYX 2011 server on a windows 2003 member server. The DC is a 2003 SBS which is being migrated to 2012 R2 Standard DC

I wanted to know what will the effect of upgrading the schema as part of a dcpromo on the AD integartion that SWYX has ?(it has added an extra tab to user objects for entering information)

Although i can speculate i wondered if anyone here has done this or something similar?

If this does not work i will need to roll back the DC schema - is this possible with a system state backup - will there be any ill effects?

Your advice will be appreciated

i would confirm with the vendor for a definite answer though from a general upgrade standpoint it should be ok
the schema update will just add objects; it will not go through the entire schema searching for items from a 3rd party and remove them - that isn't what it does.  at one place where i was before, we created custom schema objects for use with a java application we had and continued to work fine when we upgraded to 2008 a few years ago.  you should still do a full AD backup as a best practice anyway before any operation like this

Hello Seth,

Thank you for your time,

The Vendor is not responding to the queries, I have a local and offsite system state backup in place.

My other concern is that the server is SBS 2003 R2 and the client does not have the original OEM media - is it safe to restore a system state without rebuilding the server?

kind regards

Robert

you still need the original media to boot to do the restore
