    10.4 and 10.5 clients with 2008 server?

    Hello,

    Over this year, we are looking at upgrading our Windows 2000 servers to Server 2008. Before we start our preliminary testing, has anyone had any issues or problems binding Mac OS 10.4.11 or 10.5 clients to 2008's Active Directory?

    Any other interoperability issues I should be aware of?

    We also have home folder storage on a 10.4.11 XServe server - I assume this, once rebound to the new 2008 server should continue to work as normal....

    If anyone is running a similar set-up, any advice would be very welcome.

    Thanks!

    Yep- no problems here when connecting 10.4 or 10.5 clients to Server 2008.
