Domain Migration

Curious is all....

We have a global network, with several forests.  Our particular forest is a second level domain.  Our domain is a division of the company.  Within this domain, exists OUs that are subdivisions, and so on and so on.  They are restructuring this domain, adding a third level domain in order to minimize the admin implact that the foreign admins have on the US and, probably also to make it easier to install GPOs over our specific subdivision.

Question I have is if they are requiring sites to have one dedicated domain controller to migrate to this new subdomain.  If a site does not have a dedicated DC, then they will use the central subdomain DC and bypass the sites for authentication.  Can this be done?  I guess it is dependent on the circuit.  What about DNS, DHCP, and other DC dependent services?

Any light would be nice.... Thanks!

it can be indeed, i was part of a team designing a structure very similar to what you have just described, for the sites with no DC, they would authenticate with a DC in the central office...no worries at all....ill post the guide for sites and services that i play with
