  • Install DC into existing domain


    I'm about to do an installation and I need a little help on procedure:

    I have a client running a Windows 2008 R2 domain and I am installing a cluster for them to run renders. My cluster works as follows:

    A head node that is a DC running Windows Server 2008 HPC Edition and some compute nodes on a private network from the 2nd NIC of the head node, also running Server 2008.

    Ideally I would like to install the cluster in my office and then just integrate the entire domain into my client's forest, rather than doing the entire install on site. So my question is really, can this be done or will I have to run dcpromo on site or can I do it by VPN etc.

    Any advice would be much appreciated.
