Join a domain as a member server from across internet
Posted on 2004-11-24
I have a Win2000 Domain across town out on a DMZ. I have Win2003 on a DMZ at home. I am attempting to join that domain across town as a member server before promoting to a DC. I have set the DNS of the Win2003 server to the domain across town, and it resolves fine.
Every time I attempt to join, I am prompted for credentials. After providing sufficient credentials, I get an error "Cannot join domain.com, Network path not fond".
Do I need to VPN through to join from across town?
If so, do I need to maintain the tunnel in order to maintain the remote sites functionality?
