Windows server 2003 SBS question, AD PDC

By tgreaves
Jan 3, 2008
  1. Can Windows server 2003 Small Business Server SP1 do active directory PDC? Meaning can it be a primary domain controller for other xp workstations?

    If so I cant seem to find it on the wizards and also cant find any howtos on it anywhere on the internet..

    Yes, domain controller functionality is a part of SBS.

    Maybe you are looking in the wrong places. There is no such thing as a PDC is Active Directory. There are only domain controllers.

    Try running the "dcpromo" command.

    Thanks.. The post above says that it can infact do this.. I have my entire domain(in my house) running on server 2003 Datacenter edition and it working but I am going to try SBS as a vmware machine to see if I can find where it is..

    Ok.. Im not sure of all the windows server terminoligy just yet since I have only use Linux for doing all of this before..

    Ill try the dcpromo command to see if I can get it working..

    I really like Datacenter edition, lots of cool stuff in there and its well worth the money I paid for it.. ;)
