I'm not so sure that they CAN work together without problems - they certainly were not designed to and I think you're going to have lots of annoying little problems with things like profile conflicts, service accounts, etc.

As a result, the only advice I can give is to have good, verified backups before you begin and be very observant for bizarre little occurrences along the way. Perhaps someone who has already been able to make this configuration work will be able to post an answer with additional details.

Cavedweller is correct that SBS does not support a BDC role but it also does not support trusts so the multiple-domain model doesn't work either.

Both SBS and SBS2000 were designed for single-domain, single-server environments although you can use them with a member server.

I am almost positive you can't setup a BDC with SBS-4.5. This make me think that you can't setup your servers to "work together" within a single domain since SBS always wants to be the PDC.

You could setup the new SBS2000 as a diferent domain and setup a 2-way trust allowing users from one domain to use resources on the other. The two domains can exist on the same network segment. You should probably try to setup the SBS2000 server as the WINS and DNS master for both domains.

Remember the focus of SBS is on "small" business operations which need a little of everything and don't need to invest in backup servers and such.

If you really need the resources of primary and backup servers you should consider migrating to NT server instead of SBS2000.
