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
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?
