Is it possible to add a SBS 2003 as a DC to an existing 2003 domain?
Posted on 2007-08-07
We have a Windows 2003 domain with one server that servers as our DC, FSMO and DNS and also used as a file server. In addition there is an Exchange 2003 server which is also a DC.
The company is small - just 10 users, but we still wanted to split up the file server and the other domain functions to a seperate server.
We purchased a new server, but accidently ordered it with Windows 2003 SBS - instead of the standard server license.
Is it possible to add the SBS server as another DC to the existing domain and also have it be a backup DNS? Ideally make it also be the master server on the domain.
Ideally we would like to move Exchange to a member server (so it's no longer a DC) - so that would only leave the current DC as a DC, unless I can add this SBS as well.
If that's not an option is it possible to transfer Exchange to the SBS server and make it a member server of the domain, so the current Exchange can remain as a backup DC?
