I want to test DC site failure between 2 sites connected via a leased line. Both sites have 2 dcs each on Win server 2008. Both sites can communicate with each through our leased line.
Both sites have their own DNS and DHCP servers.
The plan is to unplug both DC on one site and see if those on the other site take over and vice versa. This will simulate a complete DC site failure.
As I understand we will have to move our fsmo's role over to the active dcs when the others are taken down and also DHCP and DNS. If we did have a complete site DC failure on site1 I can I setup a DHCP and DNS in a disabled state in site2 ready to take over in case of an emergency.
