I have an existing Windows NT 4.0 domain in a small company. I want to add a Windows 2003 SBS server onto the network and allow the 2 servers to coexist until the end of the year and then take the NT server off the network.

Is this possible for them to coexist for a period of time?

Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks.

Yes it is.  Are you making an active directory domain or using it as a stand alone server?  

If you make it an AD domain you will need to create a trust between the domains to allow proper access or to slowly transition users to the new domain whil still allowing access to old NT4 domain.

Windows 2003 SBS server will not allow trusts. I believe the SBS server will want to install AD and be the DC.

Didn't notice that you said SBS.  I am not sure of the differences of SBS.

mmixon is correct.  SBS will not allow trusts and needs to be it's own domain and DC.  Here is a MS KB article:
