Add a W2K Adv Svr to an NT4 Network

By Cricket_Moon ·
Hi all. I need to add one Windows 2000 Adv Server to an existing NT4 network. I need it to leave my existing domain alone and just be another server on the network. Yes, I have already determined that I need it. However, should I add it as a seperate Domain on the network so that I can switch it to native mode? Do the trusts of NT work with the trusts of Win2K? What are my pitfalls in having one NT4 domain and one Win2K domain?

Relying on a bad memory: But you should definately leave it as ONE domain. When you go to complete Win2K, then you will upgrade you PDC and other DCs and you will still have one domain, one tree, one forest. This is what you want if it a locally contained domain.

Since you're going mixed mode, you should be able to add your Win2K server into the existing Domain, after you've created the computer account.

That's the problem, I do not wish to upgrade the PDC to Windows 2000 Advanced Server. I want only to add Advanced server to the existing network. If I add it as Test domain, I know that I can set up a trust between the two. I am trying to set up with Adv Svr in native mode.

If you are adding the Win2K server as a member server you need to do nothing special to your domain. Win2k Pro/Server/Adv Server can participate as a member of an NT domain, no AD is required. If you wanted your Win2K server to be a Domain Controller, then you have to use AD, (upgrade your PDC, or install into a new domain). Win2K AD domains can trust NT4 domains in either native or mixed mode.

On Win2K Adv Server you use the AD Domains and Trusts MMC to build the Win2K side of the trust.

Sorry, carmen, I wasn't suggesting that you upgrade the PDC, only that you should stay with one domain for future Win2K upgrade. This means that you should add the Win2K server to your current domain!
