  • Add exchange server to exsisting dc

    Hi
    I currently have a windows 2k3 server as a domain controller and I want to add a win 2k3 sbs server with exchange as a secondary domain controller. I know I can add the the SBS machine to the exsisting domain if its not a domain controller itself yet but I want to know how I can add it to the exsisting domain after I set up exchange and remote web work space?
    Any help would be appreciated

    I dont recommend making that SBS a DC with exchange on it, try to keep exchange as a member server if possible, if you want that SBS to be a DC, follow this link:

        SBS must be installed with AD. It's in the EULA.

          You can't do that.
          SBS MUST be a domain controller, it MUST hold all of the FSMO roles. If you don't make it a domain controller or remove the FSMO roles then it will shut down. It isn't just in the EULA, there are hard restrictions on the use of the product.
