When adding servers to a current 2003 domain, are servers added the same way as user work stations?  Is there an additional step?

You can control the rights to join computer to the domain through policies. The object is in the Computer Configuration/Windows Settings/Security Settings/User Rights Assignment folder. You can give permission here to specific user accounts or groups to add workstations to the domain. As far as changing workstation names, this would have to be done by logging on locally to the workstation with a user logon with administrative rights to that workstation. I don't know of any policy that could be used to control this domain-wide.

JoshGibson,

No additional steps will be required. You can add the server using same steps that you use for workstation.


Good day...
