I have been tasked to deploy an SBS (probablly foundation) box on a very limited budget.
The office in question currently has around 1 Windows Vista Business, 1 Windows 7 Business, 5 Win XP pro machines, and 5 XP home machines (don't ask!)
The XP home machines are getting on a bit and probably need replacing in the next year or so, but for the meantime I need to connect them to the SBS foundation box, mainly to see an SQL express server, Internet and perhaps also for documents, no other access to the server will be required for these clients.
I have found some scripts on the internet, which seem to be legal and allow you to map a drive to connect to the domain: one example here, http://www.experts-exchange.com/Networking/Microsoft_Network/Q_20926306.html
Is it possible to see an SQL express server when you are not 'officially' connected to the domain, could there be any other reprecussions of trying to dupe XP home into thinking its allow in?
