Problem in User Guide's "Joining Active Directory" steps
I'm looking at page 211 of the user manual trying to join this thing to the domain. It says I have to add users to the computer in a "Security" tab. Mine doesn't have a "Security" tab.
It's Microsoft Small Business Server 2008
The steps I did:
Opened "Server Manager" expanded "Roles" expanded "Active Directory Domain Services" expanded "Active Directory Users and Computers" expanded "domainname.local" expanded "MyBusiness" expanded "Computers" expanded "SBSComputers" right-clicked empty space under existing workstation entries in the right panel to choose "New" then "Computer" named the newly added "Computer" according to it's hostname right-clicked the newly added computer to choose "Properties"
The tabs present are: "General" "Operating System" "Member Of" "Delegation" "Location" "Managed By" "Dial-In" "UNIX Attributes"

The user guide is quite out of date, and anyway this step is, as it says "optional". As long as you have a Domain Admin account with which to join the domain, the accounts and computer objects will be created as part of the join. It's more tricky if you don't have the correct privileges, but unless you are in a larger organization it shouldn't be a problem.
Getting the documentation updated is a top priority, but getting 3.0 released is an even bigger priority. Hopefully it will get updated soon though.
