Hi all,

I have a webserver that is a member of my Windows domain.

I plan to move this webserver onto my DMZ, is it safe to leave this server on the domain (although the relevant firewall ports will not be open to the DC) or is it best practice to remove it first?

I only wonder what information could get from a member server if malicious access was obtained?
