Joining a Web Server to a Domain
Posted on 2007-03-20
Server #1 - Exchange Server | current Domain Controller for small company (about 10-15 users)
Server #2 - Web Server with Virtual Machine software installed so that Development Web Server is on the same box | also houses database used by website | was the old Domain Controller for company, and although it is not acting as such, it still has AD installed and thinks of itself as a Domain Controller.
I am wanting to add Server #2 to the Domain of Server #1. I am thinking that I need to uninstall/disable AD from Server #2 and then add it to Server #1 as you would any computer. This seems to me, too simple of a project though to be correct…..or is it? Is there any special configurations I need to do when adding a web server to a domain?
Side Note: I didn’t set this up, just the situation I was hired into a few weeks ago. Currently working on getting a 3rd machine to separate the production web server and the development web server; but right now it is working.
