Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Hi,

You can easily joing Windows 7 to a Small Business Server 2003 network, by simply going to the Computer Properties Box and Joining the SBS 2003 Domain. If however you also use the ConnectComputer Wizard that is available in SBS 2003 to joing a Windows 7 client computer, you will need to install some hotfixes depending on the version of SBS 2003 you are running. Check out <a href=”http://support.microsoft.com/kb/926505″>Microsoft Hotfixes</a> for this. Its a KB article KB 926505

Oh and yes, you can connect a Windows 7 64bit Client to an SBS 2003 Domain

Hope this helps, let me know if I can help anymore,

Kind regards

Raj

    If you Windows 7 is a home version, then you will not be able to join the domain. Otherwise, yes as Raj says. I would HIGHLY recommend that you use the connectcomputer wizard so that the workstation is properly joined. The same goes for when you create users, use the wizard. In the SBS enviroment, the best rule of thumb is to always use the wizards.
