Server 2003 Small Business & Server 2003 R2 Question

Server 2003 Small Business SP2
Server 2003 R2

I have a Small Business Server that is acting as the DC.
I need to add a second server as the Terminal Server.  
I have a Server 2003 R2 ready to fit the bill.  
However what do I need to do to get the Server 2003 R" to join the domain as just a server?

It's very simple. You just need to join the Server 2003 R2 machine to the network using the http://sbs/connectcomputer wizard. It will join in the usual manner, becoming a Member Server on the domain.

Since the server will be a Terminal Server, as a security precaution you should not promote the Server as an Additional Domain Controller.

One more thing--VERY important--the primary DNS on the R2 must be the ip of the SBS server, or it will be flakey.

Once you set this up, you will need to have BOTH sbs client licenses and terminal server licenses to accomodate the number of users remoting in.

Also, group policy is VERY powerful when the Terminal server is a member of the domain.
