Joining Windows 2008 R2 server in domain as backup DC
Posted on 2011-02-18
Hi, I am planning on joining a Windows 2008 R2 server as a backup DC in the domain.
We have 5 domain controllers at each site and they are Windows 2008 32bit standard servers.
I know that there's additional steps I need to do (such as adprep) before joining the R2 server as DC in the domain.
Can someone tell me step by step instructions on how to join R2 server as backup DC in the 2008 standard DC group?
We also have plans to make this new R2 server as primary DC later on and i would also like to be prepared for this as well.
