  2. Hello,

    Thank you for posting here.

    According to your description, I understand that:

    You want to know whether you can setup SBS 2008 server to a existing Window
    Server 2008 Standard domain.

    If I have misunderstood the problem, please don't hesitate to let me know.

    Yes, I think you can set up a SBS 2008 into existing Windows Sever 2008
    domain. However, please pay attention to the following:

    1. Please understand that you may have to do it manually instead of
    counting on the option "migration from existing server(join existing
    domain)" in Windows Small Business Server 2008 Answer File Tool when you
    try to install the SBS 2008 server.

    2. In a SBS environment, the SBS server must have all FSMO roles for the
    domain. In the other word, there must not be any existing domain trusts or
    child domains (single domain in single forest) in the existing Windows
    Server 2008 domain.

    For more detailed information, you may refer to the guide explains how to
    setup SBS 2003 in a existing AD domain.

    Hope it helps. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not
    hesitate to let me know.

    Best regards,
