I'm wondering what the best practice is when adding a physical second domain controller in an VM enviroment.
- Two Dell PowerEdge Servers
- One Dell EqualLogic SAN
- Several Intel member servers ( 1 I plan on using as a second DC)
I'm having issues with the power going down in the city and shutting down my equipment (power staying off longer then the runtime on my backups). The first time this happed I wasn't able to bring up the servers and corrupted some data. pretty much had to restore from backups. I don't have a second DC, just one thats a VM on the SAN. I'm interested in having a physical DC on another site within my district as a replication. I never had to do this with VMware in the environment. Not sure if I can without corrupting data if all the equipment goes off again....
If someone can enlightin me on the best practice I would greatly appreciate it.....
