how do you create a work group when you already have a domain
Posted on 2008-06-25
I have windows 2000 running as a primary domain controler with dns activated. I specify a static ip address and I have a number of other machine running xp pro and vista business connecting to each other (also with static ip addresses) which is working fine.
I would like to setup a workgroup so that a number of xp and vista home macines can be seen on the network but I do nto want to disrupt my domain or break teh connections that I already have. is this possible?
how do I setup a workgroup, and how do I connect to this workgroup if I am a member of the primary domain (ie how does the xp/vista pro machines connect to the xp/vista home machines and vice versa)
can you have a workgroup and a domain under the same umbrella (so to speak) if not what are my simple alternatives to acheiving my desired result?
thanks in advance
