Using Windows 8.1 With Older Domain Controllers


  • Is there any document that would specify types of incompatibility we might expect when using Windows 8.1 with older domain controllers, either Windows 2000 or Windows 2003?    

    I assume at minimum that these older domain controllers would not have group policies that are able to support the full security policy feature set of Windows 8.1?    For such cases, how do we configure security policy on those 8.1 domain member computers?   Would we use LocalGPO.wsf to import a local security policy, then join the computer to the domain to override just the settings that are supported by the domain controller and windows 8.1 in common?
