We are running Domain Controllers at Server 2012 R2 (Domain is also at that level). We Use RSAT tools installed on our Windows 7 computers (don’t laugh) to administer the domain controller functions (GPO’s, AD Users/Computers, DHCP, DNS, etc).
I am looking at documentation online from Microsoft and they keep stating that to administer Server 2016 DC’s (which we want to upgrade to), you need the RSAT Tools for Windows 10. Those tools of course do not install on Windows 7.
My question is, the RSAT tools we have installed on Windows 7 that we use with Server 2012 R2 – those will not administer Server 2016 DC’s? So we will have to upgrade our PC’s to Windows 10 first, and then use the RSAT for win 10?
I can’t directly find anything that states “No, you cannot use RSAT tools on Windows 7 to administer Server 2016 DC’s”.
