adding xp to a domain

Brian Flater 61 Reputation points

I work at a machinist shop that is running some legacy equipment for our production machines some dating as far back as a windows 95 we have several machines with xp embedded and several others with Windows 98 the machines themselves work fine but our domain is running windows 10 computers and server 2019 for our domain controller. I have a user that has been told by a sales tech at a conference that it is possible to have these machines all on the same network. I have always been told that this is not possible that server 2019 can only work with windows 7 or newer. Can someone please explain which of these are true?

    Should be fine but just keep in mind XP uses smbv1 and IE8 is the highest browser version.
