Goal

The documentation on setting up Active Directory with Oracle Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) at:

states:

 

3. Set the Forest Functional Level.

If the Domain Controller is running on Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2, the Forest Functional Level must be set to Windows Server 2008 or Windows Server 2008 R2 (instead of the value used by default, Windows Server 2003). Refer to Microsoft documentation for more information about the Forest Functional Level.
