Hi,

I have an existing SBS 2000 domain which runs an application using SQL Server. I now have a remote Windows 2003 Server domain. I want to run / use the same application on the Windows 2003, but which uses the SBS database resources.

My questions are:
1.) Is it possible to connect a Windows 2003 domain to a SBS 2000 domain over any network?
2.) What is the best way to connect a remote Windows 2003 domain to a SBS 2000 network?
3.) What is the best way to run the application anywhere on the Windows 2003 domain, but such that it accesses the database on the SBS 2000 domain?
4.) Are there any additional licensing issues involved?

Thanks

If you mean with a Trust relationship no, this is one of the restrictions of Small Business Server.

You can still allow IP Based access and get name resolution working, users will have to authenticate against the SBS network (won't be handled automatically) to use it's resources. I would advise looking into a VPN connection between the sites to handle that kind of traffic.

You can also set up SQL Server to use Mixed Mode Authentication, which should allow connections to the SQL Server using accounts defined on the SQL Server itself (SQL Authentication) rather than trying to get the SBS Domain to deal with it.
