Is there a best set of steps to add a second Win 2003 domain controller to my network? Our current DC is a virtual Win 2003 Std server on a Win 2003 host. I know that studying the Microsoft documentation is good, but I wondered if there is a quick step guide or something to shorten the learning process. I've installed server OSs several years ago and have gotten behind in my skills in this area, so i am looking for a refresher and guide so as not to miss a required step.
I have not added a second dc to a current Win 2003 network before either, and know that i have to be aware of the differences from starting a new network with a single DC and server.
Any assistance is greatly appreciated!
