Hello all, I searched the forums but did not find anything directly related to my situation, so forgive me if this is a duplicate post.
My situation is that my company has a complete AD network (single site) setup at its HQ and has a VPN link to its distribution center. The distribution center has a 2003 server running DNS currently. Due to company growth I need to promote the DNS server to become a DC ASAP. I am onsite at the distribution center and only have RDP access to the existing DC.
My question is this, what is the best way to go about dcpromo’ing the DNS server?
Do I need to uninstall DNS first or is that even a problem?
Is there a problem with the servers being in two different time zones?
