I want to join a windows 2016 standard server to a 2008R2 active directory.  All functional levels are at Windows 2008R2.

Are there known issues joining a 2016 standard server to AD 2008R2?
Are there any known operational issues?
Are there GPO compatibility issues?

I am in the processes of purchasing windows 2016 standard licenses.  How long will a windows 2016 run without activation?
