Install SBS 2008 on Windows Server 2008

benlagow
We have purchased Microsoft's Action Pack, so we have a nice sampler of MS apps. We are currently running Server 2008 as our domain controller, Exchange server, etc. Now, we want to add another server to the mix.

We have Small Business Server 2008 in our Action Pack. We have installed it, removed all AD and demoted the pre-installed domain. However, we are having trouble getting it to cooperate with our existing domain.

We could just install Server 2008, but we only have 1 license with the Action Pack. We're trying to make it work with what we have.

Thanks.

    Exactly what problems are you getting to get it cooperate with your existing domain?

    Is the SBS 2008 server joined to your existing domain? If you cannot join it, check the TCPIPv4 settings esp. DNS addresses.

    Is the existing DC working and Exchange working ok?
