How do I join 2 SBS Servers
Posted on 2005-04-07
Existing SBS 2000 server set up with generic AD name of Domain.local. The client has 2 sites so I suggest 2 servers, 1 in each site, doing replication and Term Serv for the practice management software. I installed a new server with SBS 2003 premium (needed SQL). I created a totally new AD Domain and are running them in parallel, I created all new user accounts and I'm in the process of moving over the shared files and SQL DB's.
My plan was to create the new server to mimic the old one, then to dcpromo the old one to demote it. maybe even wipe it clean and start all over. But it came to my attention that SBS wants to be the only domain controller in a Domain.
can I join the old SBS 2000 server to the new domain as a member server? or even a secondary ADC?
