taking over new business -- removing existing server from domain
Posted on 2008-11-04
Our company has purchased a business segment from another company. This new office is located in the UK and will not be joined to our domain here in the US. However, they must be "un"joined from their existing domain. I think i have a handle on how to take care of mail mx records, and changing their recipient policy for the new email address.
My question(s) is what happens to the small business server once it has been removed from the old domain? What happens to file shares \ rights? Do we want to create a new domain? If so, what happens to Exchange?
Thanks for any insights.
