Data center hosted domain
Posted on 2006-05-03
I have two systems in a data center. both are running 2003 server. I have no Active Direcotry setup yet and exchange server waiting to be installed.
GOAL = domain AD replication across both boxes and domain logon for 5 remote offices. The probelm is that i always set these servers up on site and VPN between the offices. all is fine in that config but this is different
[What is the suggested order of installing active directory and exchange in a public IP environment without hardware VPN's]
[does a .local domain still work as it is on a public IP (do i need a fqdn ie. somecompany.com & box1.somecompany.com & box2.somecompany.com)]
[to create a SDC what i do have to do above just joining to the Domain... Join and then promote?
[How do the offices log onto the domain?]
thank you for all the help...
