Steps to build new AD controller at HQ for new remote site

agradmin asked
Last Modified: 2019-12-03
We are building a new AD controller to be used at a new site.  What are the best practices/steps for setting up site and promoting the server/adding to site?

Our primary concern is over building/performing dcpromo at headquarters then moving to the new location/ site. Initially the sites will be connected by a 200/20 site-site VPN over internet, later replaced by a 20/20 ELAN/fiber connection.

Experienced advice on recommended steps would be appreciated.
