How do i make additional domain in Local Area Network.

We purchased a new HP server.  I want to synchronize new server with present Servers data including active directory over LAN. Later present server will be permanently disabled. Clustering services can be used? If so, how is it possible?

Check your DNS IP config on both servers. First server must point to it self, new one to the first. Also check DNS console if all necessary records are present.

If you will have still issue with it please open new question a paste link here.
