greetings,

I found some links but would like directions on how to create a new site in AD for my DR site and add a server to it so I minimize my chances of mistakes. I plan on making the server a DC once up there.

thanks

create a new site in active directory sites and services

Once the new site is created you will add the subnets for your remote office in the subnet folder.

You will associate the subnet (s) with the remote site.

So now you have a site and associted subnets

You will next want to create a site link between the main office and remote site

To to the Inter-site Transports folder then to the IP folder and right click and select new site link

Call it something like "Main Office to DR"

Then you can move the Remote DC into the new site.

You will also want to make the DC at the remote site a Global Catalog

Thanks
