  • Adding a new server

    I have a server with 2k3, running ad, dns,, exchange 2003 and storage, and its works great, thanks to help i received from other form members. The new issue i have storage, so i took another server i had idle, load it up with 2k3 and a mirror 2tb storage raid.

    The new server does it need AD or do i need to add it to forest?? i tried the past several days to track down any inforamtion and i can not get an uncomplicated answer as tp how to add a second or third server to the forest and does each new server reqire it own ad

    thanks

    No, each new server does not need it's own AD. Join this new server to the current AD domain.

          Great, done, it shows up in my list of computers, having said that. I now have a server with a 2tb storage array, i mofidified my templates to reflect the new storage server \\XXXX\vhpusers\%username% but when i try to add it it states that i do not have premission even though i am administrator. The new server has been setup as a file server, what step am i missing or is there some documenation you could direct me to, too help

          thanks

            Did you reboot the server after you added it to the domain?

              which server the ad server or the file server also i noticed that the file server is looking to user and administrators from itself \vhpstorage\administrator or vhpstorage\user and it should be looking for vhp\administrator or vhp\users what might ne wrong there??

              thanks

                The file server needs to be rebooted after joining it to the domain. What do you mean about the looking part? Do you mean when you're viewing the permissions on a folder or when you're adding permisssions to a folder?

                    So you're looking at the permissions on the folders on the file server. That's exactly how it's supposed to look. When you create folders, the permissions for the folders are inherited from the parent folder (the C drive). If you add a local or domain user or group to the permissions of the parent folder, then all child folders will inherit the permissions. Note that you don't really need to do this unless you need to apply specific permissions for specific domain users to specific folders. When you join a computer to a domain, the domain users group is added to the local users group and the domain admins group is added to the local admins group. As it stands right now, your domain users have whatever permissions the local users have by way of their membership in the local users group. Bear in mind that I've just given you the barest insight into file and folder permissions, local and domain users and groups, and permissions inheritance. It would probably server you well to do some reading on these subjects.

                        Once you've done the reboot, you should notice more permissions.

                        You should also consider separating your OS and your data partition - for the sound reason that if one of your users fills up the data partition with porn for instance, the whole server will crash in a heap.
                        if you have the data on a separate logical drive, then at least the server can keep going.
