Compatibility Sharepoint 2013 <-> 2019 Domain Controller RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello Everyone,

    I have been advised in the windows server forum to post my question here.

    We are running a domain on forest-functional-level (FFL) and domain functional level (DFL) 2008 R2. We have a mix of domain controllers on 2008R2 and 2012R2. We are now planning to install our first domain controller with server 2019. This will update the active directory schema but of course the FFL and DFL will remain 2008R2.

    Can anybody confirm that SharePoint 2013 can coexist with domain controllers on 2019?

    Unfortunately I have not been able to find a compatibility matrix.

    Thank you!

  • Hi HarryNew.

    As far as I know, there should be no problem: the only requirement is 2003 Native mode, there is no upper limit; also there are no changes in AD DS in Windows Server 2019 from 2016.

  • Yes, you can use 2019 DCs. As Luigi noted, 2003 native mode is the minimum requirement and there is no maximum DFL/FFL
