Backup Windows 2003 DC
Posted on 2004-11-10
Is there any way to create a Windows 2003 domain controller that can be kept offline and just brough online maybe once a week to sync it. We're pondering doing this mainly just to have a DC for disaster recovery purposes.
Such that if we lost the DC's in the corporate office we could bring the backup one into the office and bring it online.
I have a nasty feeling that the answer to this question is no or that it needs to stay online all the time at a remote location so that it can stay replicated, but I figured I'd ask.
