Forest Trust between W2K8 R2 and 2000 Domains RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Is it possible to create a Forest Trust between a Windows Server 2008 R2 Functional Level Domain and a Windows 2000 Mixed Functional level Domain?

    Are there any limits to a Forerst Trust levels when involving Windows Server 2008 R2 vs 2000/2003 Levels?

  • No,

    I believe that this would require at least Windows 2000 Native. You could create an external trust. Please see http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc736874%28WS.10%29.aspx . The main key is that there cannot be any NT domain controllers and the domain/forest functional level must be at least 2000 Native.
