Technology: Adding a Windows 2012 Domain Controller to a Windows 2003/2008 Forest

In this post, I walk through the process of adding a Windows 2012 domain controller to an Active Directory forest that contains Windows 2008 domain controllers and is at the Windows 2003 Domain and Forest Functional Level

To install the first DC that runs Windows Server 2012 in an existing domain and forest, the machine where you run the installation needs connectivity to the schema master in order to run adprep /forestprep and the infrastructure master in order to run adprep /domainprep. These steps are necessary to prepare the AD forest for the Windows 2012 domain controller.

We’ll walk through these steps in this blog post:   Adding-A-Windows2012-DC-To-Windows2003-Forest
