Moving DC to a New Box
Posted on 2004-08-01
I Really need some Advise on this.
I had only one PDC on my Network, Then I was reading on EE on how to Move DC from one Box to another. So I got another Brand New Machine so I can move my DC to that Computer.
Before I moved DC on that I tested it out on my Own Box. So I ran DCPromo on my Box and Added Child Domain to the Exisiting Domain which was on my network already. it was kool I was able to see all the Users and Setting within this Child Domain Same as PDC.
Now I am confused.
- if I Add a New User within Child DC using my Machine, it will Add that user to PDC automatically?
- if my PDC crashes I can use Child DC on my Box or it will Crash as well?
- Why do we Need Additional DC's anyway?
So These are some basic Question making me Confuse.
Now How Would I move DC to the Brand new BOX. using the Same Technique i did with my Box? But Wait, What About DNS Settings. So far i had Dns Installed on the Same Box i have PDC.
