    Hey all,

    This is a question from one of my clients.

    Will windows7 only work with the server2008 Active Directory? Or can it used with the server2003 AD?

    We have been hearing that windows7 will only work in a server2008 domain environment.


    Thanks

    I'm running it on my laptop joined to a Windows 2003 domain... works fine.

    There is a bug if the first part of the domain name is longer than 15 characters, but there's a hotfix for that.
