Trust between Windows Domains 2000/2003 and Windows 2012-R2

Right now we are at AD Windows 2008-R2 Forest/Domain Functional Level for Corporate internal network
We have 1 Forest Transitive Trust between our Windows 2008-R2 and Windows 2003
and we have another External Non-Transitive Trust between our Windows 2008-R2 and Windows 2000
we are planning to upgrade our Windows 2008-R2 to Windows 2012-R2 and raise Forest/Domain Functional Level to Windows 2012-R2
My question is that will this upgrade work with these 2 Trusts or if there is any compatibility issue
Thanks

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You will hit compatibility issues with those 2000 servers. Long out of support, MS neither tests nor provides updates to support connectivity. The ciphers are old enough that you'd have to significantly weaken your newer machines to get them to talk, and you'd be doing so in an unsupported configuration *if* you can get then to work at all.

Truthfully any 2000 server should be replaced. And in the rare instances they absolutely cannot be, they should exist in a vacuum. They should not be on an normal network. They should not see other machines. If they drive specialty equipment like a CNC, they don't need internet connectivity nor federated trusts.

And 2003 is nearly in the same boat. Published lifecycles matter.

Trusts will still work after upgrade.
