  • how to install a 2nd server Connecting through a VPN

    Hi everybody,
    I have a windows 2003 server enterprise with exchange acting a as primary domain controller on the main office, I need to install a new server on a second office located out of town, both offices have a sonicwall tz180 firewall with a site to site vpn connection capabilities. How should I configure my 2nd server in order to be able to share data, authenticate users and computers, and act as a backup domain controller in case my main pdc fails

    Anyone could help me with a step by step documentation or any suggestion?

    Thank you.

    BDC's dont exist in Active Directory.

    When I did this I installed the new DC at the first site. Created a new site with a subnet in AD S&S. Made the server a GC server. Moved the new server into that site. Allowed enough time for replication. Physically move the server and reconfigure it for the new IP range.

    You could also setup the server at the remote site by just pointing the DNS on the new server to the first server and then setting up AD. After finishing setup DNS to point to itself.

      Didn't get the poll thing... What's its purpose?

        Poll closed.
        1 1 was a racehorse.
        2 2 was 1 2.
        1 1 1 1 race 1 day,
