Question about introducing a R2 server into our Domain.
I have been asked togo and help set up a new server for one of our Primary feeder schools. I have checked the spec and it is a R2 2003 server that is coming in.
So am i right in thinking that before i can join the server to the domain i need to update the schema?
If so i put the disk in the curent server 2003 DC and follow the MS KB instructions for updating hte schema, then I should be able to join the new R2 server to the domain?
Is my procedure correct?

You only need to update the AD schema if you intend to use any of the new R2 features such as the printer deployment wizard. It doesn't matter if you extend it before or after you install the server, it will work either way.
