Have a new server with windows 2012r2 standard installed on it. Getting ready to setup AD on the server.
In reading online, noticed that there is a strong opinion about NOT naming your domain something like company.local. My question is since I am setting this up for a small local government (less than 10 client computers), and since they have no registered domain name, does the guidance against .local still stand?
Would appreciate hearing thoughts/ideas on this subject.
