Server type...

How do I find out what type of installation my server is... domain controller, standalone etc.?

I know in 2000 it's different, but I just listed those 2 NT-type ones above because I don't know what types are in 2000.

How do I modify the type of server my 2000 installation is set for?

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

There are two Server types: A Server (Memeber server) and a Domain Controler.

With DCpromo (when you run this) you can upgrade/demote a Domain Controler.

Two types? That seems too simple for something from MS... so there is no more BDC, PDC and standalone... just DC and member server... ?

Yes, but you can optimaze the server. You have different options. So there is a terminal server option. Lincense Server option e.o. But these are Member servers or DC's.
