You guys have helped me out before and I am hoping you can do the same again :D
Well, our company is closing down for referb and I am thinking about re-doing the whole network, domain, shared resources, just about everything.
Clean install of all the operating systems on our three servers and a clean install on all of our client machines.
What I am slightly puzzled about is on how configuring what I need.
At the moment, we have three servers. All servers have active directory, DNS etc installed.
At our head office we have a domain, lets call it HEADOFFICE. Now people who are at our headoffice can log in, acccess shared resources etc.
We then have a small office located about 15 miles down the road and again, people who are at this office can log on to the domain called OFFICE 1. Again, they access shared resources etc.
And finally we have another office around 30 miles away (in a diffrent direction :D) which lets say the domain is called OFFICE 2. And once again they can access shared resources etc.
Now each of the servers are individual. I need them to "connect" to each other.
Lets say I have the main domain called OURCOMPANY at out headoffice then TOWN1.OURCOMPANY at office 1 and then TOWN2.OURCOMPANY at office 2.
On the clients workstation, they can select which domain to log onto as alot of our staff seems to be moving back and forth between our three premises and creating a new login for them at each place is alot of hassle.
I am based at headoffice, so if I am able to access say TOWN2.OURCOMPANY and create new OU's and user etc that would be great.
Is this possable?
So in a nut shell... I want to have three domain servers, one at HEADOFFICE, TOWN1 & TOWN2, to which all three domain names are selectable at client login and all, if not most, of the domain management can be done from headoffice.
Thanks in advance.
I look forward to any and all responses.
