Thank you for any detailed feedback.
I have configured domain numerous times for just practice purposes but never on a production environment. My weak point is the DNS name for the domain. Let’s assume in this situation, that I have registered a domain called sample.com and this domain is hosted on the internet by a website hosting company. Now what DNS name do I choose for the domain for the company using Win 2003 server with Active Directory? During the dcpromo and configuring the Active Directory, I chose the name sample.com and received an error message saying the name already in use. I want to configure a forest root domain with Active Directory and I want to configure the same server to be an exchange 2003 server. This server is going to serve 30+ users.
Thank you again.:confused:
