Good Morning Experts I am hoping you could help me.
We have two sites on our Active Directory Domain. Our Forest and Domain level is 2008 R2.
We are closing the other site today that contains a domain controller, global catalog.
This domain controller will be down for 4 hours or better.
I do not want to change the replication schedule of the whole site.
I did change the schedule of the domain controller itself for during this move to not check in during this time which was done yesterday.
My question is, when should I move it in Active Directory to the correct site? It's currently on a different subnet and that is how it is in DNS.
Is this as simple as, turn it off, turn it on at new site, change ip address and then move it in Site's and Services, or should I move it in Sites and services before disconnecting it and then change the ips?
Help, not sure what way is best.
