At the moment I have 3 domain controllers. One is a server 2012 r2 which I just built. I will be demoting one of the DC at a future date
* 2 DC at one branch (one will be demoted-the other is the DC I just built)
*1 DC at another branch
I need to setup DNS Global Catalog on the new DC. .Someone told me I should wait until I am ready to demote the old DC before I set up the GC. I was told that having 2 DC that are GC servers could make too much traffic for the network
Can someone explain this and point me to instructions on how to setup GC?
I do not see error messages in the DNS event logs but I do see this message in the DNS global log
