Will this work?
Posted on 2005-03-24
I am replacing an existing server. I am not putting both servers on the network together. I have the new server plugged into a separate hub. My intention was to configure the new server exactly the way the old server was so that I would not have to do much workstation configuration. Just basically wanted to plug them in and go. Anyway, the old server is showing the domain as "domain.local". The new server is showign the domain just as "domain" without the .local. They are both 2000 Server. Is this going to be considered a new domain to the workstations? If so, how can I get the new server to have the .local after the domain?
