Does anyone ever tried to join a server 2003 TS witch is member of domain "A" to a domain "B" created with a SBS 2008.
I heard that I will run into a lot of difficulties trying to do so but I would like you experts to give me some advises on the subject.

You want to disjoin from domain A and then join it to domain B?
If so then there is no reason why it shouldn't work.
If you have local users then this will be fine, if the users exist in Domain A then they will not be able to use the server anymore and you will need to recreate the users in Domain B

You cannot be the member of 2 domains at the same time.

isn't that what I said when I said that you had to remove it from Domain A and join it to Domain B?
