  • Joining a local file server to a remote domain controller

    I have a windows 2008 r2 domain controller set up at a datacenter (mainly running exchange).

    I would like to have a file server at my local location.

    I installed 2008 R2 enterprise edition on it.

    What is the best way for to me set it up to be part of the domain, so that the same username and passwor5d they use for exchange they can use to access the file server.

    Also, as of now the computer are not set up to be part of the domain itself, where should I point the computer to?

    Establish a VPN to the datacentre and join the domain over it
