3rd server

I have two Win 2003 servers(standard Ed) and both of them are domain controller. Now I have another server. I want to run my Access and SQL database from the new server. I also plan to install MS Sharepoint on it.

Now my question is-- how do I add this 3rd server? I have Window SBS 2003, 2003 Standard Ed., Windows 2003 Web Ed. -- which OS should I install and how will I connect this one with my other servers?

Please give me a walk trough.

thanks

Hi nibirkhan,

if you are wanting just an SQL and sharepoint server then i would reccomend 2003 OS and just join to the domain as a member server the same way you would a client machine

Yep. 2003 Standard is your best bet for this scenario. I'm pretty sure Web edition will not allow you to install SQL.

2003 Standard is the only choice in this case.

You canno install SQL server on Web Edition and SBS requires that you install it as the first DC of a new Forest.
