Our current Domain Controller is also a DHCP and DNS server. Is it advised to DCPROMO the secondary DC with the “System State” or better to do it Live on the network (after hours)? Also, I don’t worry about adding DNS to the Secondary DC and just point the DNS to the Domain Controller..right? Thanks.
