  • third DC add

    Hi,
    I would like to add one more DC to small network (two DCs AD), because first DC (all FSMO roles on it) getting old. Just to have more protection in case of failure of first one. Any negative consequence with adding third DC? And 3 DNS on it?

    Thanks.

      Thanks Marcel.
      So it make sense to install DNS service on third DC?

        It's possible, sure. And for the sake of failover, why not...

              and one mor related...
              about GC
              Both existing DCs are GCs. Would it be any "harm" if enable GC on third one?
              I remember the recomendation for having only 1 GC per Domain...

              But want to check your point on that...

              Thx.

                No, all DCs can easily be GCs -- there are some restrictions in a multi domain environment but for one domain it is far easier to make them all catalog servers

                  Re: third DC add

                  Personally i prefer to have all my DC's as GC's.


                  Means my clients can still login and access things if another DC goes down.
