Make another Global Catalogue

I have a small 60 client seat office, but would like to add another GC in case the first one (which is the DC) goes down. I understand that if the main DC then does down, my Exchange Server will still be able to function ... (please confirm)

So, what's the easier way to make a 2nd DC a GC ?

Thanks

Hi,
Have a read here - it explains how to create a dc as global catalog - but follow the links to read up on the rest of it. Yes your exchange server will still be able to function.

Excellent ... and embarrassingly simple.

Thanks so much.

Some more info... your Exchange Server will function, but you users will not be able to log into the domain, you should always have to GC's.
