We have RM CC3 with 2003 servers and a legacy 2000 schema .. BoredGuy can you let us know the best way to do this this RM ? Thanks !
"You can also update the AD schema on your CC3 domain to Windows 2003 R2 level to give you printer deployment ability, and should also be able to update the 2008 schema (although I've not yet tried the 2008 one) "
How much prep time would you have to do this?
I would start afresh and pull some all-nighters!
We would just like to upgrade schema from 2000 to 2003 for the printing options at present.
Updating the schema take about 10 minutes to perform to gain the additional features that MS included in the Windows server OS that RM never worried about.
Certainly upgrading to 2003 R2 as a minimum to support GPP's and printers is worth it on a RM CC3 network, as it does not affect the rest of the system tools.
Updating to the 2008 R2 schema is also fine, and would be a requirement if you wanted to add 2008 DC's to the domain down the line, but not needed if your just adding 2008 Member servers to host your printer queues.... just remember that RM Auditor is unlike to play happily with it.
