Hello, I have just migrated an Active Directory domain to another forest. There is a DC for the new forest in place at this site that has been migrated. Can I create a scope on this new DC and authorize it, or will this cause issues with the other DHCP server? I can not use this as a secondary DHCP server, since the location is in another country far away from the PDC hosting DHCP. Thanks!

I'm not 100% clear on what your new configuration is, but I assume that if your existing DHCP server is in another country that your new server is on a different subnet (and therefore is not servicing your clients).  If you don't have any other DHCP servers on the same physical subnet, than you will absolutly want to create a scope and authorize it.
