I am adding a new DC to an existing 2003 forest.  Existing has 1 GC and 5 DC's at branch offices connected over MPLS WAN.  We use Sites and services to replicate changes.  Do I join domain at main site, run dcpromo and let AD replicate, then change IP subnet and setup sites for AD replication...or I have the option of hanging new server off a local firewall and running dcpromo from the new subnet.  I thought this might try to pull AD from a BO..   Hope question and explanation is sufficient..Thanks in advance
