How to join an already configured SBS 2011 server into a 2003 Domain
Posted on 2013-11-21
I run a 30 computer 2003 Domain( Company) with two DCs. My Company has merged with a smaller company whos five employees who are going to be working in our office starting next week. Their network has one Small Business server 2011 and have their own domain (New).
With help from Experst I have learned that:
SBS does not support trusts
SBS cannot be demoted from a DC to a member server.
My ONLY option is to join it to the Domain as a global catalog server holding all the FSMO roles.
I am concerned about breaking this sever not to mention my whole network.
While I am still looking elsewhere for advice does any have any thoughts or suggestion?
Perhaps someone have done this before?
This is a bit scary.
Thanks in advance
