W2K3 File Sharing Authentication - AD with Workgroup

By kevin ·
I'm considering adding the Domain Controller/AD role to my Windows 2k3 server. But I'm not sure how that will affect file sharing on the current workgroup setup. Has anyone successfully shared files from a W2K3 server with a workgroup and AD at the same time? So in other words run AD and workgroup sharing in parallel
Ideal situation would be to enable AD on the server and add the DC role while maintaining workgroup sharing while I migrate users and PCs to the new domain. But I don't want to interrupt sharing while this is going on, over a period of about a week or so. Thanks!
