I had these specific related questions after viewing Upgrading from WS2003 to WS2016 (AD issues)
It seems there is a consensus that migrating (no in place upgrades) to new a DC/DNS server running WS2016 keeping DFL/FFL at 2003 for the time being, then the legacy fileservers folders can be migrated to new WS2016 servers subsequently, and finally raising DFL/FFL 2008 then 2016 when all legacy systems deprecated.
A. There is a WS2008R2 with ASP.net framework 3.x running a legacy asp.net 2.0 app and MySQL 5.x. Push to ASP4.0 framework and it falls over.
The original strategy was to leave it in place whilst a new version is developped. There are some references to potential problems with the application and RPC in the proposed new environment. Has anyone come across this or offer any insights in this scenario ?
B. There is a SQL Server 2000 running on WS2003 with a DC role, under VMWare. The same server runs Sun Accounts v4.x. I know there are potential issues running SQL Server 2000 in the new environment, and am concerned the Sun Accounts system whilst am told it does not directly use AD, may have RPC problems similar to 1. above.
Any feedback or insights greatly appreciated.
