We have a new client that has a Windows Standards 2003 domain. We would like to put in a SBS2003 for the other computers in the office but need access to an application on the other server. Sbs 2003 does not do domain trusts is my understanding. Any one know a work around to access the data on the 2003 server ?
Thanks in adavance!

    Put it in the SBS domain.  SBS domains can have multiple servers, even multiple DCs, but the SBS server MUST be the FSMO Master.

    So demote it and then join as a member server. But migrate user accounts first. Thanks
