Try this document - although it is for Server 2008, it *might* work. However, Windows 98 is obviously no longer a supported operating system, and Microsoft do not offer any official solutions.

Most search results say that Windows 98 cannot work on anything above 2003, so don't be surprised if there is no solution that works.

Run it outside of the domain and simply place it on the same subnet so it remains accessible to LAN users...would that not work so you can continue accessing the application in question?

The application installation was done with domain credentials. Don't have any support that application

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

If you remove it from the domain the application could still work.

BEFORE making any changes to the 98 machine, ensure you take a full hard drive image in case anything gets truly messed up.

It probably will not work (as others have noted).

In order to connect my Windows 98 virtual machine to my Windows 8.1 host machine, I have to change the setting for NTLM 2 on the Windows 8.1 machine.  

From the Microsoft Support Article below:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/239869

To enable a Windows 95, Windows 98, or Windows 98 Second Edition client for NTLM 2 authentication, install the Directory Services Client. To activate NTLM 2 on the client, follow these steps:

1. Start Registry Editor (Regedit.exe).
2. Locate and click the following key in the registry:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control
3. Create an LSA registry key in the registry key listed above.
4. On the Edit menu, click Add Value, and then add the following registry value:
Value Name: LMCompatibility
Data Type: REG_DWORD
Value: 1 (for legacy systems)
Valid Range: 0,3

NOTE: I am not recommending this, merely stating what I had to do for my own setup.

Another way to do this would be to put the Windows 98 machine as a virtual machine on Windows 7. You need to make the change above to Windows 7, but then the Windows 7 machine will connect to the Server 2012 domain.

Truly, it is several years past the time when you should dump such old applications in favour of new applications.
