  • Questions on SBS 2003 n Server 2003

    Hi, was doing on a search n come to here. Hope u guys wont find my first post here a troublesome one. Appreciated all help render.

    Questions:
    I have a SBS2003 server running as my Domain controller Active directory n Exchange server in Domain “CLDM” and I have another NT 4 Server as Domain Controller in Domain “CLEM” and one more Server 2003 application server as member server in “CLEM” All PCs in the office are join under “CLEM” domain.


    Question:


    1) Can I shutdown NT4 Server (DC) , then down the SBS2003 server (DC n Exchange server) rename n join SBS2003 to CLEM domain and dcpromo it as DC?

    Remark: Personally I think I cant join SBS 2003 in this manner due to the complication that it is a Exchange server. Can explain to me on this?



    (Not Link to question1)

    2) My SBS 2003 being a Domain controller. Can I join Server 2003 as a member server and do a dcpromo to Server 2003 to make it a Global catalog server (BDC) ??

    Remark: I know I can do this if both server are Server 2003, but between SBS2003 n Server 2003?


    3) Is it safe to use RPC over HTTP for my exchange server? Is it safe? If using this method, does it mean I have to install RPC proxy server on my exchange if I have no spare server?


    4) Lastly, from my office sceanario above. There is no fallback if my exchange crash. Is there anythg suggestion u can give me on having a fallback plan if exchange fail?


    Thanks a lot and sorry for the list of questions.
