Do I need to create trust relationship between 2008SBS server and a separate Windows 2008 Server on the same network

Hi,

I've just replaced a 2003 SBS server with a 2008 SBS server on a network that also has an additional 2003 Server (not SBS) which is used to host a web enabled database which is also accessed by domain clients inside the network.

Having no experience of networks with more than one server I wanted to ask what if anyhing I need to fo on the new 2008 Server to "trust" the other 2003 server. Do I need to do anything at all?

Thanks

Adam

If the SBS 2008 Server and Windows Server 2003 are on the same Active Directory Domain then you do not need to setup a trust.

Your SBS 2008 Server is the Domain Controller, verify what your Active Directory Domain Name is. Compare this to the Windows Server 2003 to see if this Server is on the same Domain.

I am assuming that your Windows Server 2003 is not a Domain Controller? You will be able to tell if it is by seeing does it have Active Directory installed.

Hi,

As far as I am aware the 2003 server wasn't necessarily part of the old and is definately not a member of the new domain either. The 2003 Server is not a domain controller and does not have Active Directory installed.

With all this in mind can someone tell me what if anything I need to do please?

Thanks

Ok, so the 2003 Server is installed as a Workgroup. You can join the Server to the Domain and it can be a Member Server. You do not need to install Active Directory, you just join it to the Domain the same way you would a PC.

Are all the PCs on your LAN joined to the SBS 2008 Domain?
