I have two Windows Server 2019 servers that I need to add to Server 2008 R2 domain.
It is not possible to add 2019 server to 2008 R2 domain without enabling SMB 1.0 client, and I would like to skip having SMB 1.0 at all on the domain. (For printer scan locations I will use either an isolated VM or internal FTP server.)
The procedure I devised is as follows:
- enable SMB 1.0 client on both servers and add them to domain
- migrate DC roles from old server to new
- remove old server
- remove SMB 1.0 from new server machines
- profit? :-)
Is this procedure OK?
I will have a number of Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 10 machines on the network, which should all be able to connect to new domain correctly?
Any tip or info is appreciated, as I am trying not o have to recreate entire domain from scratch.
Anyway, don't have time to wait for an answer. I compared settings with Server 2016, and see that it has SMB1 enabled by default. So I installed SMB clients on both servers and added them to domain.
I am currently processing updates and such, and will soon proceed to promote one to DC and other one to RDS.
Will post back how it worked.
Interesting quirk - you can't access add to domain using new settings, it is a bug or whatever, but need to go to advanced system settings that are buried deep now.
