Hi there

We have an SBS 2003 server where the SBS installation was never completed, ie it is running as Server 2003 Std. It has been configured as a domain controller and file server and about a dozen people are using this server every day.
My question is, if I complete the SBS installation to get Exchange, SharePoint and all the other goodies, what will happen to the current configuration? Will the currect AD be replaced?

Thanks
Mark

Hi

The AD configuration should be saved and the extra addons that come with SBS will be installed. It is best to have all users logged out of the server while this installation continues. Make sure you go through all the Wizards before getting all users logged back in. It may take quite some time to complete though.
