Replacing domain controller - site connections

Hi all,

Havent done this in while. I have an existing 2008 domain controller at a remote site. Im replacing it with a new DC which has already been promoted. In the sites and services I can see the new domain controller but it has only automatically configured its replication with the existing one. I plan to demote the existing one and remove completely. When doing this will the new server automatically adjust so it connects to the domain controller at the other office?

When you demote the other DC also manually delete it from sites and services (doesn't happen automatically).

The Knowledge Consistency checker (KCC) will create new connection objects for the new DC.  You can force that by running repadmin /kcc  http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc742173.aspx

Thanks
