WindowsServer >> Upgrade to R2

Hi
We have a LAN running W2003 SP2. Have just got a new W2003 R2 server. Can I
just add this to the domain, or should I 'upgrade' ezxisting servers to R2
first? (Or perhaps any ohter action?)
TIA

Windows OS159

Depends on what you want to do. If you want to use the R2 machine
as a DC, you will need to extend the AD schema using adprep on
Disc 2.

If you don't want to use it as a DC, you can just add it as a
member server, and everything will work fine.
