  • SBS2008 as ADC

    Dear all

    In my organization i have a Windows Server 2008 r2 which is promoted as Domain controller. I want to attach one SBS2008 with this domain Controller so that i can use Exchange 2007 from SBS. but i do not know how to proceed with this configuration. when installing SBS2008 it always create a domain controller.

    Is There any way to Install SBS2008 as ADC or BDC to a Domain Controller running on Server 2008 R2.

    Thanks

    SBS must be the main DC and FSMO holder, although you can have other DCs in the domain.

    Not sure of the procedure, but there is a suggestion from our resident SBS guru that you can install 2008, join the existing domain, and then complete the SBS 2008 install:

    Note also that SBS 2011 is the current version, so unless you have already bought the licenses, you should get that, not 2008

      You can't do what you're trying to do natively and without breaching licensing.
      It may be possible to find a way to do like Ossian suggested, but it's not designed to do this.

      You cannot install an SBS Server into a domain, and not have it be he domain controller.
      If you want to do this without SBS, then buy a full exchange licence,and the relevant CALs.

        Huh?
        You can do what the OP suggests without breaking any licensing agreements. First you install the Server part of SBS, joining it to teh existing domain. You transfer the FSMO roles to the new server and then continue "upgrading" to full SBS. As previously stated, better using SBS 2011 if you can, for longer support. SBS as we know it, is End Of Life next year.

            Can't be done! SBS is SBS, not separate AD, Exchange etc.
