    I have gathered that SBS2003 cannot trust an NT4 domain.

    I want to do the reverse, to use an existing fileserver with an existing NT
    domain, so SBS users get acess.

    Can this be done?

  2. Trusts are a two-way street, down which SBS simply cannot travel.

    You can use pass-through authentication (PTA) and simply have two
    independent domains. As long as you get the networking basics right so
    that tcp/ip and DNS work for all machines, it'll be no problem. You will
    need to synchronize the user account information (ie uid/pwd) between the
    domains for PTA to work transparently. Any differences, and the users will
    be prompted for logon information whenever accessing their non-joined
    domain.

    Thanks Steve. This would do the job I want to do. But I have never done it -
    where do I start?

  5. You could investigate doing an ADMT transfer of the existing (other) domain
    accounts to the SBS domain, and then demote and promote the file server into
    the SBS domain.
