Creating an Additional Domain Controller at Parent root level
Posted on 2005-05-04
Hi all, our Root DC at parent level may come up for replacement soon, in the mean time I have a nice new server to add as an additional controller incase the old one goes smoky.
I would like to do some proper redundancy so if the old server dies, I can continue as normal. We do have server imaging software which is up and running.
I'd like to setup the new server as an additional controller, I have some info on this and it seems straight forward, but what else should I do? Transfer some roles across? Seconday DNS zones? We run WINS on the old server so I will to a push pull to the new server to replicate that.
The old server is a Root DC for about 30 child domains in various remote sites. I hope all this will make replacement later on much easier.
