I have an IIS server running on Domain A.  If I join it to Domain B do I need to make any changes in IIS or elsewhere to pick up the web site or authenticate?

Hi,

You have a couple of things to consider.  If your IIS service is running as a domain user, not likely, you'll have to change that.  Also you'll need to make sure the DNS server your IIS server points to has all the same records for the web site domain and hostnames.  

I'd do it in a two step process.  No make that three steps, I'm adding Step 1 which is get a good backup!!!!  OS-Level!!!

Step 2, unjoin the server from Domain A so it's just a standalone server.  Does/Do the IIS-hosted services still work?  If not, diagnose why and get them going.  

Step 3, now that everything's working it's very very unlikely that your IIS server will break when you add it to Domain B so go for it.

Stuff like this is always straightforward until/unless it isn't!

Good Luck,

Also, if you have AD-integrated authentication on your site you'll probably need to re-setup that component once joined to Doman B.  But you may luck out.

The site is up but when we try to publish to it we can't.  Looking at IIS Manager I see that the FTP Site for "Web Site Content is stopped.  When I try to start it I receive this:

"The site cannot be started because another site running on this computer is already using the IP address and TCP port values that you have specified for this site"

Do you have another site running on that IIS server?  it may have port 21 bound to it.
