I've been an IT Engineer for 5 years now and I have joined a new company. The problem is that they install Server OS for their clients but do not configure the Server as a Domain Controller. So, all the systems on the LAN are on a workgroup.
I am installing an SBS 2003 OS on a new box and as you may know you have to install the 4 CDs for the OS. When I try to install the second CD for Exchange, I cannot do so because it is not a Domain Controller.
I wondering should I make this Server a Domain Controller so I can install the 3 other CDs and then demote the Server back onto a workgroup?
I have never come across this problem, but the company say they use workgroups because the client's networks are small - maybe 3 to 4 PCs at most.
