Windows 2003 AD domain and plans to (rename the domain and) expand it with a branch office/child domain
Posted on 2006-11-30
Currrently we have a windows 2003 domain and are planning to rename our domain and expand it with a branch office/child domain.
The name of the AD domain we have is hm.nl and will be hm.net (or hm.local) and is positioned on one DC server in the Netherlands at our main office.
Our branch office in China is ready to deploy a new server and needs to be connected with the domain in the netherlands...
The China domain should have the dns name cn.hm.net
and the workstations/clients there should have wrkstn55.cn.hm.net
As for our workstations in the netherlands, i would like them to have a dns name such as wrkstn99.nl.hm.net
Since we only have one DC in the netherlands, is this possible and wise to design/make or should it be just wrkstn99.hm.net
Can it also be done on 1 DC in the netherlands or do we need to have more? (we have servers available..)
I hope someone can help me.
Thnx in advance
