I am trying to do a test for a client and needs some assistance setting up AD Sites and Services corectly. I have the following:

1. Existing network 192.168.1.0/24
2. Newly Added network 10.10.10.0/24
3. Exchange 2010 SP 1 Environment is completely built and is workiug without error

I am trying to add an additional active directory site so that i can test cross site proxying for CAS servers. I understand that i need to do the following:

1. Create new subnet (in Sites and Svcs)
2. Create new site name
3. Assign the subnet to the newly created site
4. Assign the server itself to the new site

The following roles will be assigned to the server Domain Controller (Not ideal), Global Catalog, Exchange CAS, HT, MBX). I have tried unsuccessfully in the past to create new ad sites so i am in need of some detailed (if you can) assistance.

Thanks so much

Robert

Hello,

Steps 1 to 3 are correct. Step 4 should be to create a site link, or modify the default site link, if one exists. You do that by expanding Sites - Inter-Site Transports - IP. Your site link should include both sites and set the replication interval to 15 minutes. If you create the new site before you promote the DC, it will automatically be added to the correct site.
