One domain with multiple sites

By b.kiss ·
What would be the proper way to discontinue the use of multiple sites on a single domai without loosing any user data (with in the active directory). All sites belong to "" rather than to have a unique name for each site.

Do you mean that you have multiple Active Directory sites, which are subnets?

AD sites have nothing to do witht he DNS structure.

Or did you mean that you have multiple DNS sites that are sub-domains of a particular site?

For this solution, you would need to restructure your DNS. Are you seeking a discontiguous DNS names space? Currently you have a contiguous DNS name space with:

If you restructure DNS, you may well have to redesign your entire environment, especially if you have LDAP or PKI implemented.

Some more information on what you are attempting to do would assist in developing a better answer.

you can discontinue any site by removing the site and subnet in AD sites and services and not lose AD objects. Sites are physical structures where as AD domains, OUs itself are logical structures. Usera accounts are objects within the logical domain structure. Your not changing the logical structure.

note: BFilmfan is right in that DNS comprises domains and subsequent zones for the DNS name space. If your Active Directory network is a single forest, single domain logical structure, with child domains of the root within a contigious name space , DNS will have a single zone encompassing the domain and all it's child domains.
