Hi... Hope you can point me in the right direction on this... I currently have 3 locations connected via VPN and each location has a 2003 R2 server. These servers are not in the same domain, each server is its own Domain. I am connecting another location to the VPN and that new location will have a brand new 2008 R2 (64) server (not yet configured). I would like to consolidate these multiple domains into a single domain, having the 2008 R2 be the DC of the new domain and the existing 2003 R2 be members of this new domain. I want all servers to replicate AD in order to authenticate users if a VPN link to the main server goes down.
What would be the best way to accomplish this?
I have looked around for a post on this specific scenario but most of them are relating to either adding a 2008 to a 2003 domain or upgrading 2003 to 2008.
Your assistance would be greatly appreciated... Thank you in advanced!
