Windows Server - SBS 2003 & Server 2000

Asked By andy on 11-Oct-07 09:10 PM
Is it possible to connect a Server 2000 system to an SBS 2003 domain. I know
this works for Server 2003, but not sure about 2000.

Thanks for your help.

You can add the server using add computer or you can run dcpromo and make it
a domain controller.

Works Great., I still have a Win2000 server.

Create the Computer ID on the SBS Box
use http://server/connectcomputer
on the server 2000

...as long as you haven't raised your forest/domain functional level to 2003
naitive, you're OK with a 2000 DC. If either or both (DFL/FFL) are true,
then your 2K server can ony be a member server.
