Group Membership required for AD forest functional level upgrade RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Team,

    Here, I am looking for a help to confirm one thing.

    I have a multi domain forest, which is currently set on window server 2008R2 DFL and FFL. I want to raise my forest functional level to Windows server 2012R2.

    I know how to do it and I also know what are the impacts of it. my question is what is the minimum group membership required for this work. I can see many articles which says you need to have Enterprise Admin rights to perform this task. which is not correct at all. With my experience I can say if you have domain admin rights in forest root domain that is sufficient for this task. but I couldn't find any supporting document to prove this.

    can someone help me to prove this thing or share a document.
