Need to bring up a server on the network, but not in the domain

Hi:

I need to run a server app for a few months - So I would like to bring up a dedicated Windows 2000 server just for it  - and be able to hit the network printers, but not join the domain.

Our domain consists of Window Server 2003's and Windows 2000 servers.

Is this going to create problems?


Thanks

Not really... printers can be accessed by IP ports I imagine direct to their printer servers and the if the application doesn't need any domain authentication etc, i.e. users just connect to an IP address then all would be fine there (e.g. a web server, Lotus Notes server etc.)

Don;t forget other issues such as security, AV solutions, patches etc. that you may be pushing down through your domain at the moment that might need to be done manually.
