This server is a preferred bridgehead server
Posted on 2013-01-05
The properties for my windows 2000 server, fsmo DC, shows 'IP' under the "This server is a preferred bridgehead server for the following transports:". The properties for the windows 2003 server DC has nothing listed there.
In prepping 2 new windows 2008 R2 servers to replace those old DCs, is it necessary to add 'IP' in that box on one or both of the windows 2008 R2 servers? I only have the 2 domain controllers and no remote sites or DCs, etc. Once I have the windows 2008 R2 servers setup as DC's, with one being the fsmo holder, then the two old servers will be demoted, but will remain on the network as member servers for now.
I have a home lab set up as a test environment to basically, minimally match this work setup.
