So I'm adding a Server 2008 box to my Server 2003 domain/forest functional level domain.  I have not worked with Sites and Services before, but the previous admin setup different sites.  When promoting the server, will the new DC appear in the correct site based on the subnets defined in Sites and Services?

If sites and services have been configured correctly then there will be the required subnets associated with the correct site, when you DCPROMO the server it will go in to the correct site automatically based on these settings.

Thanks demazter.  That's what I expected.  Appears the subnets associated with the sites are correct.

It should be placed in the correct site if that admin set things up the right way, if it doesn't then it is easy enough to move over.  More info
