Need to break off 2 DC's into its own forest - HELP!
Posted on 2004-09-08
I have a Active Directory forest with one tree, and a single domain.
I have a remote office with two domain controllers for this domain.
This remote office is breaking away from my organization into its own company, and I need to figure out how to break them away.
My guess is that I will need to create a separate forest for these two domain controllers, and a new domain within that forest. Is that correct? If so, how do I go about doing this? Do I run dcpromo on one of the domain controllers in the remote office to create the new forest?
Any thoughts that anyone has will be highly appreciated. Thanks.
