ADMT - Target domain 2008 R2

    Question

  • Hello, 

    have anyone did ADMT domain merger like following? I wonder if its workable:

    2012 R2 source -> 2008 R2 target

    sounds silly, but just wonder if anyone have done it before?

    Thanks!

    Have not done it for that direction, but I believe there should be no problem because in the link below it does not states the opposite:

    • The server where you install ADMT can run any supported version of Windows Server, including Windows Server 2012 R2 and Windows Server 2012.
    • The source and target domain controllers must be writeable, but they can run any supported version of Windows Server with a user interface (not Server Core), including Windows Server 2012 R2 and Windows Server 2012.
    • The source and target domains must be at Windows Server 2003 domain functional level or higher.
