Install AD DS role while WEB SERVER role is already installed RRS feed

  • Question

    • Is it OK to install AD DS on Server 2008 Standard while the Web Server role is already installed?
    • The web server role was installed and we don't really need it, because we have an accounting application installed on the server and it should be used by multiple users.
    • Now if I install the AD DS role, will it be safe? Do I have to install that application again?
    • The application uses oracle database.

  • Active directory domain services should not be installed with other roles like web services. If you're not using the other roles then remove them.
