I have 2 servers that need to go on the same network with some software that requires a domain setup. I have a Windows 2003 Std just setup as a file server in workgroup mode. I have a new Windows 2008 Std server that needs to run SQL 2008. I heard you shouldn't make the SQL server a DC? So, what's the procedure to convert the 2003 server to the DC and then make the 2008 server part of the domain? I have XP Pro workstations that need to authenticate to both servers. I originally posted this but just found out that SQL shouldn't be on the DC. Looking for the easiest procedure to setup as we don't need anything complicated. Thanks!
