This summer, I will need to merge another company's MS 2003 SB Server into our domain.    Can anyone tell me what is the best way to bring this server into our existing domain?  I"m not that familiar with SBS but I understand that it cannot be dcpromo'd.....our current network is Windows Server 2003, not small business.   Please let me know what other details you may need to assist me.  Thanks

Quite simply you cannot, you will have to migrate the users etc to the new domain if you wish to do that.

Any changes to the installed configuration of SBS will break SBS.

So is there some type of AD migration tool that I can use?  There are only 12 users on this server, so it might be easier to just manually add them.  As for the software and data, then it looks like I"m going to have to just install this on an exsiting server in our current domain and then backup and restore the data.   Have any better ideas or am I on track?

if there is only 12 users then using ADMT is probably a lot more effort than it's worth.
