A new client already has SBS 2003 and several Vista Business workstations, all put in place by "Morons on Wheels" who left all the desktops in a WORKGROUP rather than joining them to the SBS domain. Obviously, use of shares on the server is problematic to say the best.
I tried to join one of the desktops to the domain but got the following when runing connectcomputer: "to join the small business server domain, you must be a member of the local administrators security group on this computer." The user I was logged in as was and admin on the machine. (please don't give me any lectures about Vista security concepts)
I searched and found that apparently the Windows Small Business Server 2003: Windows Vista and Outlook 2007 compatibility update http://support.microsoft.com/kb/926505
, needs to be installed to get past the domain joining issue.
Downloaded it and tied to run it only to get: "not enough storage is avaialable to process this command."
Searched again, finding some people suggesting fiddling with virtual memory settings, which I did...without sucess. Tried running it in safe mode..again no luck.
It was the end of the day and ran out of time to continue troubleshooting, and I can't reproduce this...we don't have a Vista install in our office (imagine that!).
