New Server in an existing Domain
Posted on 2006-04-14
I have recently moved our Accounts System from the Domain Controller to its own dedicated server running Windows 2003 server.
We already have a domain controller and a Terminal Server running SBS 2003
My problem is that the new server is not part of the domain (it shows that it is a member of Workgroup in My Computer), although I can access it by mapping a drive to its UNC address, also, I can run the accounts package from the desktop pc's, but it is very slow, which I am assuming is becasue the new server is not part of the domain.
Should I run DCPROMO and make the new server another DC in the existing domain, I only want it to be a file server and do not want DHCP, DNS or any other DC functions on this new server.
