I know the title would make you all say "duh, you need a domain" but I'm trying to find ideas on what I need to do based on my current situation.
I currently have two servers setup that contain regulated data.
- Primary server is Primary DC, sql, web and DFSR server
- Secondary server is Secondary DC, sql, web and DFSR server. SQL database from primary would be restored from primary's backup if primary went down, web would be turned on if primary went down and DFSR replicates back and forth.
- The only reason they are on their own domain, of which they are the only computers, is because of sql mirroring and dfsr.
I inherited these servers and I really see no reason to have a domain for just these two because there must be workgroup ways of accomplishing the DRSR and possible sql mirroring I want to emplace on the new replacement servers.
If anyone out there has any recommendations, please let me know as I'd love to hear your ideas and wisdom.
