Hi all

Just going to run this plan here to see if there will be any issues I have not thought about.

HQ has a sbs2003 server. I will be going to a new remote site tomorrow to set them up. Here is what I plan to do:

Establish site2site IPSEC VPN - bot sites will be using completely different subnets
Join new server (win2k8) to existing domain
Promote to secondary DC
Join clients to domain

Questions:

Will I need to do anything in order for the new server to be able to find the primary domain and dc? Thinking it mightnot route through the VPN properly

Is promoting the new server to a dc enough to enable clients to be able to log in should the VPN link drop?

Any other suggestions?

Set the primary DNS on the new server to be the DC at HQ taht way when you join the domain it should find the DC

Is promoting the new server to a dc enough to enable clients to be able to log in should the VPN link drop?

Yes make sure it is a GC and install DNS

One final step will be to create a site and subnet in Site and Services and add the new server to the site
