How to add a new SBS 2003 Server into an existing domain?
Posted on 2006-06-27
We currently have a SBS 2003 Server with Exchange email and file sharing capabilities. Disk space is very low. We would like to add another server and transfer all email and data files. In addition we have being asked to implement OWA and Sharepoint services on this new server.
We would like to keep the existing server as a domain controller and add the new server as a member server. This member server will handle email, file sharing, OWA and Sharepoint services. The old server will remain the domain controller but will also be running a database.
What are the potential pitfalls of implementing a solution this way?
In what order should the steps be taken?
We think that it would take us about 3 days to implement all this. Is this an accurate estimate?
