Add SBS 2003 to an existing SBS 2003 domain
Posted on 2007-11-22
We are runnign a small network with a SBS 2003 server and 20 client computers. We want to add an addition server (application server) to the existing network. We already purchased a new HP server come with SBS 2003 Premium R@ pre-installed. I use the DCPROMO command to demote the new server to a normal server and joined into the exisitng domain. However, the new server will automatic shutdown within an hour. In order to save money, is there any way to join the new server into the domian without automatic shutdown ? If there is no way, what OS recommend to use on the new server ? Is MS 2003 server standard can do it ? I need a urgent fix on the new server because we need to implement a new software.
Your advise and help are high appreciated and give us a great help. Thanks
