I have a SBS2003 Server Premium  network with 2x W2k Servers.

I would like to allow an existing member-server running Windows 2000 to authenticate users in the event the SBS server is unavailable (down for maintenance or down for the count).

I have read and understand  the instructions on running dcpromo on a server that is in a workgroup to promote it to a DC but is it possible to accomplish this on an existing domain-member server without removing it first from the domain, and then running DCPROMO?
