Bring a BDC online

By jiannillo ·
I have a BDC that went down. I was wondering if it is possible to build the BDC on a differnt domain then make it part of anther domain. The reason I ask is the BDC that went down is on a remote site So I will have to build the system in a differnt location then the one it will reside on .....Thanks for all the help

Bring a BDC online

It is best to build a domain controller within the domain with which it will reside. Of course, that is the only way to build a PDC. Since you are dealing with a BDC, there is an option that might work for you, and that is to establish a trust relationship (if one doesn't already exist) between the two domains. That way, you can build the BDC while it is hanging on your LAN, and after it's built, change it's IP address, box it up and ship it to the remote site. Once they get it there and plug it in, all should be rosy, and then you can kill the trust relationship if necessary.

Good luck.

If you attempt to switch a domain for a bdc it does allow it. You can switch domains.

If you can get conectivity between the remote PDC and the system you are building it will work. Otherwise you cannot do it without some third party app. The option to change the domain name for the bdc only works when the pdc domain name is changed as well because the sids must match.
