i have installed a new virtual 2012 standard server as a member server into my 2003 sbs domain.
i have installed sql on the 2012 server and the plan is to eventually move the sql databases from 2003 to 2012
however i dont want to rush this and want to take time and test properly
i am also using exchange on the sbs server but i plan to move to hosted exchange as i only use 1 email address.
I would like to promote this 2012 server to be a domain controller so i can have active directory redundancy.
I also would like to be able to use this server as a second dhcp server and store data on it.
Is it possible to run this server as a 2nd dc in my 2003 sbs domain
I dont want to be forced into retiring my sbs server
