Are there compatibility issues between SharePoint version and Active Directory version?

I have a scenario with MOSS 2007 and Active Directory 2000.

I will upgrade Active Directory to 2012.

I could not find any information regarding any compatibility issues. Would the two items be compatible please?

It's not supported to install Moss 2007 on Windows Server 2012, but you might be able to link them as stated on MSDN forum in this post e.g. domain controller on another server if that helps.

SharePoint Server 2007 is not supported Windows Server 2012

  • Thanks, the article does not specify whether linking to AD 2012 is supported. I would assume yes, but it may be better if I test it out first... Apr 14, 2014 at 9:26
  • @JosephCaruana yup that's right but my assumptions were based on another post answered by a MVP on MSDN forum, please check updated answer. Apr 14, 2014 at 11:03
