    Default Forest/Domain Functional levels and group scopes

    This is my downfall of the test. Memorizing some things. Is there an easy way to remember how different functional levels work and also the restrictions of groups? (universal, global, and local).

    Thanks

    I don't have any easy answer, basically learn it the best you can.
    No longer work in IT. Play around with stuff sometimes still and fix stuff for friends and relatives.

    That is a nice collection of information. I'm going to print if off and study it. Thanks

    If you don't have an answer, then why did you post?

    When raising the DFL, what is the order? Does it go 2000 mixed, 2000 native, 2003 interim, 2003?

    From what I have in my notes, yes, that is the order.

    I also have in my notes that in order to raise the forest level to the latest, the domain functional level must be at the latest.

    To activate the newest domain features, all the domain controllers must be running the newest Windows Server operating system version in the domain. If this requirement is met, the administrator can raise the domain functional level.
    To activate the newest forest-wide features, all the domain controllers in the forest must be running the Windows Server operating system version that corresponds to the desired forest functional level. Additionally, the current domain functional level must already be at the newest level. If these requirements are met, the administrator can raise the forest functional level.

    Yes, in order to go to the FFL of 2003 all of your domains need to be the 2003 DFL. Not sure how that works entierly, since there are 4 FDL's and only 3 FFL's.
