  • Installing SBS within windows server 2000 domain

    Hi,

    I have a Windows server 2000 domain running.
    I wish to install sbs 2003 so I can learn how to use the product and test the email and vpn functionality. Can I add the SBS 2003 to my 2000 domain environment?

    Kind Regards

    No.
    SBS is a self centered control freak and will take over. No really.
    I love SBS but it does not play well with other servers.
    SBS is most of my day........

    You should install it in its own environment. Maybe behind a router on its own subnet. Add a workstation too for the full effect. Incoming email will be confused, but you can get the idea.

      First of all, my advice is install it in a Virtual Machine - either Microsoft or VMWare and learn about it a bit there.
      Secondly, you could install it in your 2000 domain. Use "Your Favourite Search Engine" to look up Add SBS to Existing Domain.
      TIA

        ozraelised, have a look at Train Signals SBS 2003 CBT. This will allow you to fast track your learning with SBS and give you Instant Experience with the package. Well worth the investment.

        If you are looking at specialising in SBS then another must have tool is the Swing Migration tool kit. http://www.sbsmigration.com/

          That was the end of the commercial break.

          Now back to normal programming
