I am about to start setting up Active Directory on Windows 2008 in the coming weeks. My setup will be a standard AD procedure with 2 DC Servers and a few weeks later down the line creating a child DC in another country, all connected together.
I am planning to use the company's own domain as the forest name for example company.com. Now this domain already exists as has a mailserver, web server hosted with a 3rd party company and I plan to keep it this way.
My question is, will using the same domain affect my AD Dns with the public Dns worldwide. Keep in mind I also plan to connect a domain server set up in another country. If problem arises I would just use company.local instead but I rather use the proper one to be more streamlined.
I hope my question was understandable and I thank you fin advance for any feedback given. Cheers!
