Opinion running 2016 & 2012 Active directory in the environment RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Experts,

    Currently we are running Primary & secondary domain on win 2016 server and would like to add 2012 as 3rd DC and the reason being using is to utilize the Local administrator account management policies which not available in 2016 & 2019 but supports LAPS which is good solution but since the program shows in the add/remove program files I personally don't feel using it.

    recently I installed 2008 R2 as 3rd DC and deployed the local admin account mgmt policy and it works fine considering this I linked to domain computers since then the policy not affect to even single workstation checked the rsop it applied but not affecting not sure what went wrong, so need to try with 2012 for this option.

    Kindly advice if I can run both 2016 & 2012 dc's in the environment.

    Thanks in advance
