Server 2008 domain to Server 2012 R2

Last Modified: 2020-02-04

I want to upgrade the Server 2008 domain controller to Server 2012 R2. (Reason we don't go for Server 2016 or 2019, we have only server 2012 r2 licneses)

I have already installed a Server 2012 R2 server and added to the domain.

If I don't run forestprep and domainprep, would that be a problem?
