I am in the initial stages of upgrading our 2008 Active Directory environment to 2016.  Are there any compatibility issues with RSAT tools in an environment with both 2008 and 2016 domain controllers.  Some of my questions are:

-  Can you use 2008 Remote Server domain Tools running on Win7 to manage an upgraded Domain with both 2008 and 2016 DC's.  Are there any issues with Group Policy management Tools
-  Are the 2016 RSAT tools running on a Win10 admin box compatible with 2008 Domain Controllers and domains.  We have multiple child domains and it may be a while before I can promote a 2016 DC into those domains.  If I can manage everything from a single win10 management machine with RSAT 2016 installed as well as the other admins, that would be preferred.
