Dear Experts
i am implementing a new server in a location 1 which is 2003 and want to install a additional domain controller in another location 2 where their is a existing local domain and two  locations connected to the local domain with 70+ users . what will be the effect if i format the local domain controller and reinstall the domain with the ADC and connect it to my location 1 through WAN VPN link of 1 Mbps Leased circuit.
the local domain has a AV /FPS and application running in the same location 2 all the users have the mapping of file shares  please let me know the best practice to do this implementation as i want to reduce the downtime of the users in location 2 as they are all using the internet and email services from the local service provider

Let's break down one site at a time:

Site 1 has a 2003 server on it and you want to add another?

What are these anachronyms, ADC and AV/FPS?

Don't know why you want to format the other domain controller. You can have two DCs on one site, as long as they are both NOT SBS machines. All you have to do if promote into the domain and replicate with the existing DC. You might want to do this later on in the evening.

For site one, there may be a little difference. You will have to create a domain controller there if one doesn't exist. Then, join all the PCs to that domain. If you want them the same domain, then you will have to replicate data from the PDCe of other site. You will probably want to make all of these DCs global catalogs.

So, New locations gets a DC and all clients join the domain on that site.
Site two gets an additional DC, one will be a second DC to the existing one.
