Changing DNS suffix - Windows 2K Server

By TBWolfe ·
When I started configuring my first Windows 2K server I was informed that it was staying local so following a recommendation from Microsoft setup of DNS/Active Directory I named it vwplant.local. I have now been informed that in the future we will be adding another server to access this domain via T-1. So is it necessary to give it a legit domain suffix or since it will be coming over our T-1 can it be left alone? If I use dcpromo can I uninstall Active Directory change the domain suffix andreinstall Active Directory?

Changing DNS suffix - Windows 2K Server

If you just want to connect any server through T1, you don't need to rename your domain since "vwplant.local" is also a valid domain (unless it is going to be a server in the internet), you just set the domain name of your new server to "vwplant.local" is ok.

However, run "dcpromo" to uninstall the Active Directory is also a good idea, since you can plan all the things again.

Good luck!
