I recently took over a windows 2003 domain and I need to add a subnet in sites and services which isn't a problem. The problem I am having is there are 30 sites created already but, the Default-First-Site-Name site isn't there anymore. When I add a new domain controller via dcpromo where will the server show up sites and services since the default site is gone?

the new domain controller will go into the site that is associated with the network that domain controller is on

if site new york is associated with subnet 192.168.10.0 and the new domain controller is 192.168.10.55 then it will be placed in the new york site

Thanks. Is that when the domain controller is first created that it will automatically be in the site associated with the subnet? IS there a way to see which site was the original default site that was renamed?
