I am setting up a new Domain controller (2008 R2) for our office.
I have sucessfully completed the process, but before I start adding users, etc. I want to make sure I am future-proofing the design.
We have a TLD that hits our website (currently hosted) and our email is currently also hosted. We'll call it xyz.com. I want to make sure my new AD structure allows for as many as possible options in the future.
We have a west office and an east office and maybe more in the future. I *think* we should have the following domains:
I setup my AD as xyz.com with a NETBIOS name of xyz. Should I start over from scratch as west.xyz.com (NETBIOS of west), or can I just add west.xyz.com to this DC?
