  • Add server 2003 R2 X64 to SBS2008

    Hi,

    We want to add a 2003 R2 X64 server to a SBS 2008 domain (DCPROMO).
    I don't think this is a problem but just wat to be sure.

    We want it to be a domain controller.



    Thanks in advance,
    Robin

          I don't see the problem. I haven't done it but I wouldn't expect any difficulties. From an economic pont of view you could have bought premium and got both licenses in the one box.So there yo go - if MS sell it must be OK
          TIA
