I am about to add a new site in my domain...actually, sptlit a existing site into two...want to make sure I have the steps right....So,

1. Create a new site
2. Associate the existing subnet with new site (subnet properties select new site)
3. Setup new DC in new site

Is this correct? Will any users logged on (in that subnet) be impacted?

You will also want to create a site link between the new site and the old site (or HQ if you are doing hub and spoke).

Users should not be impacted until the next time they login when they should use a local DC.

Thanks

Mike: Yes thanks, Inter-Site transports, mesh, Anythig to be done on the 2008R2 DHCP servers? I believe the new DC setup should auto-make and required changes, or am I wrong?

I'd point the folks on the new subnet to their local DNS/DC for DNS.

Thanks
