Adding a new domain
Posted on 2005-05-06
I currently have a Windows 2000 domain in my current building. A second building, connected via a dedicated T1, will be opened in the near future to accomodate the company's growth. The second building will be utilizing Windows 2003 Domain Controllers.
Employees in my current building will most likely be moved to the second building within the next 18-24 months, therefore the original AD structure can be phased out. In addition,
I need to set up a new domain in the second building and allow users from either building to be able to access resources from either domain, irrelevant of the physical location. If the link between the two buildingsdrops, each office should still be fully operational. If the domain in my existing building ever goes away, as planned, the second building should not be affected.
How do I go about setting up the new domain for the second building based on what I've described?
