Here is the scenario.
I have SBS2003 server which has exchange on it and is the PDC. I am building a new Windows Server 2003 Enterprise server.

Question: What are the appropriate steps I need to take to make this new server the PDC and the SBS server into a secondary? I want to keep the SBS2003 server and keep the exchange on it. And use the new enterprise server as the terminal server.

Hello iGuru2008,

you cant't have two SBS servers on one domain, rule one of SBS.

iGuru2008,

you CAN add another domain controller to the sbs network, but it CANT be an sbs, it CAN be w2k3/8 server though.

You can't FULL STOP.
If you want to make the SBS a "real" 2003 server without restrictions you can buy ans use the "Transition Pack"

Yes you can have multiple servers and domain controllers the SBS just has to be the primary.

Just to correct that slightly - you can add additional Windows standard/enterprise servers to an SBS domain, but the SBS server MUST retain all the FSMO roles.

That is what I said before:
