Hi, I am trying to figure out if I will mess anything up promoting a server on my VLAN (10.200.x.x)network to a DC.
Currently, there is an old Server 2003 R2 x32 Standard that has DC functions, as of AD, but did not have DNS Server services installed.
As of lately, it has been giving me some fits that deals with DNS.
Not sure what the Server Admin before me was thinking, but I read that always, ALWAYS make your DC's run DNS Server services (essentially AD-Integrated DNS).
So, I have a replacement server I am building to Server 2008 R2.
Can you think of a reason why this shouldn't be installed when I promote it to a DC?
Like I said this will reside on a VLAN for our student lab PC's, because we do not have enough IP's for all PC's on our main network.
The VLAN network is added to the AD Sites & Services already.
Just want to cover all my basis before proceeding.
Thanks in advance.
