Just create the separate IP subnet for the new site in the subnets container. Create the new site and name it appropriately. Find the server in the Default First site and move it to the new site. Done.

See http://www.microsoft.com/technet/prodtechnol/windowsserver2003/technologies/activedirectory/stepbystep/adsrv.mspx

tigermattCommented:
In the Sites and Services console click on Subnets in the Console Tree. Right-click in the main window, press New Subnet, enter the IP and subnet mask, then link the subnet to the correct site.

hey bro two more questions I created a subnet for the new site and I am told they have two vlans one for teh workstations and one for the back end of teh servers i believe I need to set the one for the servers. so I put in 10.1.111.0 and subnet 255.255.255.0 this will cover that whoel subnet right.

i also wanted to know what woudl happen if i change the name of teh default first name site

nothing will happen if you change the name :)

if you have two subnets, create them both and assign to the same site

Hi mate - do I not get any points for answering your original part of the question? I think a split between Jay_Jay and my answer wouldn't go amiss...

Agreed - would you like me to reopen so we can have this split ??
