I need to setup a new physical site for my job. Can someone verify with me the steps I need to make sure is done?

I am in a 2008 server\Windows 7 infrastructure. I am only responsible for the AD,DHCP,DNS side of things.

-I was going to set the subnet in "sites and services"
-DC promo a new DC
-Set DHCP with new subnet range for Windows 7 machines
-create reverse lookup zone for DNS

I cant think of anything else thats needed. Help please. Thanks.

In DNS at the new site, you could set the primary as the new server and secondary as your main site dc.

I'm assuming there is a VPN link between the main site and this new site? It's not easy like with 2012, but you could setup ip helper and a backup dhcp at the main site
Some things to think about:
Is the new site going to use a subdomain in DNS? Are you going to have a new OU for the joined computers? Shared printers out at that location? Can this site access all shares and printers at the main site? Do you need DNS forwarding back to the main site or just root hints?

You should add the new site vpn link, dc, and anything else important to your monitoring tools too.
