I had a few questions about adding a second DC to a domain. This is with Server 2003 and all machines are in the same site.

1. Does it need to have DNS loaded on the server?

2. Once it is up and working properly, how do the other workstations know that there is another logon server available? Do I have to add it via DHCP?
