  • Hello,

    Do you have any experience about Exchange 2010 install on Windows 2008 R2 and then join to Windows 2003 R2 Domain Controller ? I'm scared they are incompatible.

    Thanks

  • My experience : 

    If domain & forest function level raise to windows server 2003 & all you domain controller is Windows server 2003 sp2.

    No compatible problem to install exchange server 2010.
