Hi,

I have a question about Additional AD and if anyone can help me I appreciate:
- I have an AD 2003 environment wiht one Primary AD that is holding all 5
FSMO´s and several Additional AD sites.
I intend to add another AD in a remote site with low link so that I will
configure the AD in my local network and then transport it to the remote site.
My remote site, the destiny of the Additional AD, will not have a link with
principal site for one week but I intend join the workstations from the
remote site using that Additional AD, that will be a DNS Server as well.

I have created an test environment and the workstations join in the
Additional AD but I would like to know if it will have some problem when the
link with Primary add is on.

Any concerend about it?

Thanks for while.

Luiz

Hello Luiz,

No problem to do it that way, prepare it in the main site, change the ip
address and shut it down. Then reconfigure AD sites and services for the
new situation and ship it to the remote site. After startup with the correct
network setup it should connect to the main site and replicate all needed
changes done after shutdown.

Make the new DC also GC and DNS server. On the remote site configure all
clients to use the site DC/DNS now as preferred and another DNS as secondary
in case the site machine is down. New clients in the remote site will join
the domain even if the link to the main site is down. The client needs a
DNS server and a DC, which both is available in the remote site with the
new DC/DNS/GC.

Best regards

Meinolf Weber
