Adding a Windows 2003 server to a domain in another Windows 2003 server

Hi,

I've implemented a AD domain in a Windows 2003 server running IIS. Let's call it server A.
I have another Windows 2003 server running SQL SERVER. Let's call it server B.

Now, I need to add some domain users in server A so that server B can access them.
So, my question is what's the best way to add server B to the server A domain ?

Create a new user in server A, add it to the domain and from server B log in with it ? Or add B Administrator's (if possible) ?
Or something else ?

Any help would be appreciated.

Warm Regards,
Mário Gamito

If you add Server B to your domain you will be able to access all of the user and group objects in the domain and therefore can logon with either an existing administrator account or create a new account.  If you create a new account you will need to add it to the local administrators group on server B so best to use an existing domain admin account.

Cheers,
