New Documentation: “Adding a Server Running Windows Server 2008 to a Windows Small Business Server 2003 Network”


If you have been waiting for the release of Windows Server 2008 to add or update a member server, check out this helpful information.


 


Windows SBS 2003 allows you to add computers running Windows Server 2008 to your network; however, you cannot use the wizards in Windows SBS or the http://ServerName/connectcomputer Web site to do so.


 


Before you tackle this (not very scary) task, find out what you need to know in Adding a Server Running Windows Server 2008 to a Windows Small Business Server 2003 Networkin the Windows SBS Technical Library. This document describes system requirements and deployment scenarios, and provides step-by-step instructions to get you through the process.
