I'm planning to migrate a win 2k workgroup member server into a 2003 domain,
running terminal services for a round 25 thin clients.
This server will only need to be a member server, firstly what is the best method to get the server into the domain? Can i just use the change domain button in the properties?

Secondly regarding the existing T/S profiles on the server, is it just a case of once the server is migrated, to use a thin client to log into each of the profiles to re establish it? Currently all of the users have existing AD user accounts on the domain the server will be joining.

1) as easy as that yes, just join it
2) thin clients will have to become domain members and will create new profiles at logon with domain users

Hi many thanks for the reply, could i just clarify something about the thin clients...

as the server name & ip will not be changing, will it just be a case of the users being presented with the usual initial T/S login screen & then the windows login? Does it / will it make any difference that they are logging on using their user accounts from the workgroup the server is in, instead of the new domain?

will any changes be required in the terminal services admin section on the server as the domain will be changing?

Regards

the accounts wont be able to log in properly.....you will need domain accounts for proper security as other wise you are simply pulling security from the local database on the server
