    Small business server with domains?

    We have an existing domain controller in our Active Directory (Windows 2000 Server), but have just purchased a new server that we would like to run SBS 2000. I've seen in only one location ANY mention of trying to add SBS to an existing domain and it says it can't be done. I'd like to know if anyone else out here has had any sucess with trying to integrate an SBS server as a member server in an existing domain...

    Thanks,
    Michelle Ayache

    SBS 2000 can't be a member server. The only way to have SBS run a domain is to either start the domain with the SBS being created as the first DC in the Forest, then add other servers as DCs joining this domain, or to install SBS as an upgrade on top of an existing NT/W2K DC where the SBS takes over all server roles. SBS doesn't support trusts, you can only have DCs in the same domain.
