Support for OCS 2007 R2 on Windows Server 2008 R2

We get lots of questions if OCS 2007 R2 is supported on Windows Server 2008 R2 / domains. The current statement is very clear:

  • All domain controllers in the forest where you deploy Office Communications Server run Windows Server 2003 with SP1, Windows Server 2003 R2, or Windows Server 2008.
  • All global catalog servers in the forest where you deploy Office Communications Server run Windows Server 2003 with SP1, Windows Server 2003 R2, or Windows Server 2008.
  • All domains in which you deploy Office Communications Server are raised to a domain functional level of Windows Server 2003 or Windows Server 2008.
  • The forest in which you deploy Office Communications Server is raised to a forest functional level of Windows Server 2003 or Windows Server 2008.
  • Source: Office Communications Server 2007 R2 Documentation (CHM).

    So, Windows Server 2008 R2 is still not supported. Testing OCS 2007 R2 on Windows Server 2008 R2 requires also testing different domain/forest structures. Stay tuned.
