Promoting Windows Server 2012 R2 as domain controller in Windows 2003 forest & domain ?
Posted on 2015-02-10
I've just rebuilt a physical server of Windows Server 2012 R2 Std. and I' about to promote it as Domain Controller and FSMO role holders, what are the caveats and pitfalls that I need to be aware of when transferring from old Windows 2003 DC ?
I'm planning to make the new 2012 R2 box as a PDC Emulator, Infrastructure and RID master.
The domain and forest functionality level is Windows 2003. Some of the domain controllers are Windows Server 2003 and the rest is Windows Server 2008 R2.
