Windows 7 laptops to join server 2003 domain
Posted on 2011-09-19
I have been asked to look at the possibility of creating users on laptops that are preloaded with Windows 7 and then create users on a server running MS server 2003 SBS (small business server) on a domain
The O/S on the server will be a fresh install and the laptops will be new (the first one is Windows 7 home premium, but I could recommend Windows 7 professional if it helps).
I remember some time ago I had extreme difficulty trying to get a new PC in an office that had Windows 7 installed to join a 2003 domain, but I believe that a patch was released to help this issue and hopefully some other updates to make it easier.
Does anyone have any recent experience of getting client computers with windows 7 installed to join a server 2003 domain and do you have any tips ?
Appreciate any feedback, thanks.
