    Configure Server 2008 to join SBS 2003 Domain


    Client has an exisiting 2003 SBS Domain. They purchased Server 2008 Ent
    Edition and that will be setup and configured with a software application and
    users before it is sent to the site that has the 2003 SBS. 10 machines are
    also being configured to connect to the 2008 Server before the server and
    computers are sent to the 2003 SBS location. Can the 2008 server be setup as
    a domain before it is shipped and then moved to the SBS 2003 domain once it
    gets there?

    In a word, no. You can't join a computer to a domain without connecting to
    the domain. And any users you add to the computer will be _local_ accounts,
    not domain accounts.
