I have a corporate AD domain running on 2008 servers, for this question it is called X.com.
I also have an engineering group at a separate site, we are creating a separate network for them and want to add them as eng.x.com, they are running 2012
So, adding the subdomain to my AD should be easy, but since they are at another lcation, I am going to need to do Site replication and a bridgehead server, correct?
I have read up on doing the site replication and bridgehead server and how it works. But, I have a few questions.
1-I will need to setup an permanent VPN tunnel up between the 2 sites correct?
2-I am assuming that I have the right idea here.
3-When I setup the new controller on the new network, I don't have to be connected to the Corporate network?
Any other suggestions/information you can provide would be extremely helplful.
