Adding additional domain controller and exchange at remote office
Posted on 2007-08-02
I really need help here, i dont have time to google and look for it.
We are setting up a new remote office where we have got between 10-15 users. This remote office is connected with Headoffice (HO) via fixed data leased line 512kbps.
Now we would like to setup an additional domain controller and additional exchange server (both standard versions) at remote office.
Current Scenario at HO::
We have two windows 2000 server namely dc1 and dc2 (these are not the real names). dc1 is the primary domain controller and dc2 is additional domain controller. DNS is configured on dc1.
We have one exchange 2003 (SP2) server running on windows 2003 standard member server in the same domain.
We purchased a new HPDL 380 G5 with RAID5 server. Let me know how should i go ahead to configure additional domain controller with addtional exchange for the remote office so that the users sitting at remote office get authenticated and able to send and receive emails. The server from remote office should be able to replicated with windows 2000 domain controller from HO.
Eg: If we create a domain user with exchange mailbox, it should be get replicated with the server sitting at remote office. so that if user goes at remote office the authentication gets from that server.
Note: The new server which is purchased (HP DL380 G5) is now at Headoffice and after configuration we will ship this to remote office.
If you require any more details please let me know.
Your Urgent response is highly appreciated.
