Okay, we’re opening a new warehouse in a different city. I’m going to have a DC there that will replicate DNS and AD from corporate, and handle DHCP for the new warehouse. It will be on its own subnet. I want to preconfigure this box (2012 R2).
Specifically, I want to configure this box to be on the 192.168.1.X subnet, and act as DHCP server for that same subnet. But, I want to configure it while it’s living on the 192.168.0.X subnet. If I do that, I’ll have 0.X and 1.X in the same location acting as DC/DHCP. Doesn’t sound like a good idea, if I can even promote it in that scenario.
Anyone have some guidance/words of wisdom. Eh, who am I kidding: Help! :)
Oh, worst case scenario, I know I can always promote/configure in the new location. I’d really like to just plug that sucker in and go…
