Im upgrading from Windows 2012R2 AD to 2016. Currently, I have many Windows xp and 2003 clients running legacy applications. The Windows XP machines mainly use Office 2010, Windows 7 and 10 machines use between Office 2013/2016.
We have several Win2003 Servers in use and upgrading them doesn't seem to be an option.
My questions are:
- How much could it be affected by upgrading AD to 2016 with this scenario?
- If we decided to upgrade to 2016, will my 2003 server and its legacy applications be impacted?
- Is there any compatibility list (I didn't find any) available for Windows 2016?
- Finally, is there any issues that will be encountered with SMB on server 2016?
I appreciate any information you can provide. Thanks
