Adding an sbs2008 standard server to existing sbs2011 domain


  • Hi sorry in advance if this is a silly question.

    I have an existing SBS2011 server running as the domain controller with exchange and I have been advised that it is causing problems with our installation of our accounts software (Sage), the advise I have been given is to add a second server which only handles the Sage data files and serves them to the 4 client pc's in the company (not a massive network).

    I have a second server with a fresh install of SBS2008 Standard edition from which I have removed all of the server roles.

    My question is, how do I add this to the already existing domain?

    Does it have to be a domain controller or a member server?

    Any help you can afford me would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance.
