I am running a Virtual Windows 2008 server inside a Sun Virtual box virual machine. Sun Virtual box is installed on a T61P laptop, already on a Domain (my company's domain)
Basically I am readin the MCITP 2008 Windows Administration book, and during the exercices, they ask me to promote this virtual machine as a domain controller using DCPROMO and create the Contoso.local domain.. Since i nerver installed and configured a domain before, I am a little bit affraid of screwing up my company's 2003 domain by doing this.. thats why i am asking if its safe or not.
My 2003 DC is on 192.168.XXX.XXX/24 subnet
The virtual machine is on 10.0.0.X/24 Subnet aswell.
