W2K as app. server on WINNT network???

By difum ·
Hi,
we need to run a W2K server as an application server on WINNT network. Is this possible (and how) without W2K becoming PDC?

Thanks

Yes it is. When you build the server, build it as a member server.

It should be pretty uneventful except that W2K likes to install EVERYTHING by default (WINS, DHCP, DNS, IIS, FTP etc.) so you need to make sure that all un-necessary services aredisabled before it wreaks havoc on your network.

As the first answer stated, just install a new box with Win2k Server. It will install only install as a stand-alone or member server. You do not have the option of a DC from a clean install.
Do keep in mind that W2k will install IIS5 by default (it does NOT install WINS, DHCP, DNS, you have to specifically choose those options)
Win2K functions happily on an NT4 network. One item you do want to change is on the TCP/IP advanced DNS settings, you want to go and disable Register this client address with DNS, otherwise the server will periodically send your DNS servers update requests.
