I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing.

Don't use SBS's wizard tool to connect to it, but rather connect via right clicking "This PC", "Properties", and then under Computer name click on "Change Settings", under Rename this Computer click on "Change", then select the Domain under "Domain".
