Hi

I have two building (separated by 500 feets) with 2 24 ports switches that will be linked by 100 Mbps fiber link
1 will only have 1 domaine controller for the domain

building#1: 192.168.101.0/24
building#2 192.168.102.0/24

i will have a router with mutiple interface to route  between the 2 subnet and internet

                  |internet|
                       |
               Cisco1801 router
                  |                    |
192.168.101.0/24           192.168.102.0/24
 DC: 192.168.101.2

How can i setup the DC so it will serve my two subets (ie. DHCP, site and services, etc)

Thanks

If you have the subnets in the same site in AD Sites and Services, the PC's in the 102.0 subnet will use the DC in the 101.0 subnet.

For DHCP to work, you will need to provide a scope for the 102.0 subnet and configure your router to forward the BOOTP requests.

It is irrelevant as you have only one DC all the client will have to come to it for authentication , so no point is having seperate site etc.

Bad design

For DHCP you can crate multiple scope on the server and configure dhcp helper address on the router

I know that i don't need the two subnet and i can make it work with only one but i cannot change it because it is already setup like that for other purpose (Unix servers, IP cameras, VoIP) and would be too much hassle to change it.

I am just adding a DC to have a Windows domain that we don't have
