How to tranfer a DC with windows 2008 in another site.

Hello,

I have 3 DCs in one site.They belong to the same subnet.They all have windows server 2008 R2.
One of these controllers is going to be transferred to a different site/location in another town.
The new site has different subnet and we have to change server's ip.
The two offices will connect each other with vpn connection.
There is a DFS-R file replication role also installed between these 3 servers.We will keep this service.

What are the exact steps and in what order, so we can accomplish this task with no problems.

I am thinking that I should start with creating new site/subnet/link in active directory sites and services.

To move the DC to another site just follow these instructions from Microsoft: Moving a Domain Controller to a Different Site but having the DFS on the same server could cause some problems if the "membership" was based on IP addresses otherwise it shoud "detect" the new AD topology but you should check the DFS Step-by-Step Guide for Windows Server 2008.

Yes you create a new site and associate the new IP with the site.  Then you create a site link so that the current site and the new site replicate.  Let the KCC automatically do the rest (connection objects)

You can lower the replication interval if 180 minutes is too long.  Is the box you are moving a global catalog server if it is not then make it a GC too.

Thanks

Mike
