Probably this question has been asked but here we go again.
At the moment we have a single domain (abc.local) this domain has:
19 Domain Controllers
9 Exchange Servers
400 users Accounts
400 computer accounts
19 NAS servers
These servers are spread over 19 geographical locations, with 19 subnet sites and are linked by a fully meshed MPLS cloud.
Now we are about to create a Canadian Domain which will have DC,s Exchange servers etc.
At the moment they 300 CA users have account on our servers to forward email to the CA email domain.
My boss wants a root domain called abc.local with 2 child domains called UK.abc.local and CA.abc.local.
So I need to create these child domains and move everything from abc.local to UK.abc.local bar the first DC.
We can add DC and exchange servers to the CA.abc.local when we upgrade them.
I have some questions.
1. Is this possible, is so how complicated is it.
3. At the moment users logon to abc.local when they logon to UK.abc.local will it create a new user profile? (Dont want to have to configure 400 computers again).
4. How will this effect permissions etc will we have to visit each site to move DC and exchange servers to the new sub domain?
Thanks in advance
