My Problem is: 1. Some New Windows 7 Pro workstation is just Deploy in my domain, I know my old PDC can’t Handle the “GPO” for Win7, so do I need to promote the 2008 R2 to PDC? 2. If I promote the Win 2008 Server R2 to PDC with the old 2008 std server as AD redundancy, is it possible? Or the old 2008 std server still can’t do that role (Manage Win7 GPO)? 3. Can I ungrade the old PDC Win 2008 Server std to Win 2008 Server R2 with the “Old License” or I need to buy a New Win 2008 Server R2 License for it? Thank you.
