    You can't join an SBS server to an SBS domain as another DC.

    However, interesting concept with regards to making it a file server. I am know expert but I'm sure you'll get your answer.

    Often with SBS, depending on your version, it also gives the license to allow a standard version of Windows to be installed on another server and joined to the domain. This could be a DC, file server, print server, application server, whatever you want. The SBS server would need to always hold all FSMO roles though.

        You should be able to setup the SBS server and not join the computers yet if they are in a workgroup. If there's an Active Directory Domain then there's going to be issues.

        You should choose a static IP for the server now. It can be changed in the future.

        Also, you can add additional Domain Controllers to an SBS domain. It's the FSMO roles that need to stay on the SBS server.

            You should be fine as long as there's no other AD domains on the network.
