Installing Sharepoint 2010 Front End Server

We have sharepoint backend server and datebase on one server located on our domain, another image whcih wil be used for sharepoint front end whcih is not on teh domain

I was under the impressiont hat simple providing the passphrase ont eh front end server woudl allow it to add to the sharepoint farm and provide it access to teh sql.

Is thsi correct, or does the front end server need specific access to teh back end database

We get issue with connecting to the back end database from teh fron end installer for sharepoint

You can't put a frontend that is not in the domain. All the servers of the farm need to be in the same domain as they use the domain account to "talk" to eachother.

Koen is right as the servers needs to be on the same domain as that is way sharepoint is designed to run, For your scenario i assume its security requirement thus you can implement a DMZ and seperate the front end that way however you still need to put this on the same domain .. Hope the DMZ will eliminate the security issues for you
