    We are not sure about your environment to recommend.
    AD Recommendations : Assuming you may be having sites and create separate DR site and place your additional domain controller in that site and ensure the replication takes place properly every 1 / 2 hour.  In LAN keep FSMO roles separately on the each domain controller to improve the performance and for that would be sufficient for DR. Ensure periodical backups of system state on Domain Controller.

    Exchange : We can recommend if we know the exact version.
