virtual secondary domain controller bdc
I have never quite got over (emotionally :sick:) my last issue I had with a BDC I installed that basically knackered everything up on the PDC through some bizarre authentication issue I never got to the bottom of, hence i am still re-living it (maybe therapy needed), and I was lucky to grab the roles with the BDC and avoid extra pain.
It was a mixed environment with 2003 and 2008 and then I was trying to authenticate with squid on a linux box using kerberos and things started to break!
I have always since been reluctant to introduce a secondary domain controller to the network, although I feel that for redundancy purposes i should have one so all the AD data is replicated in case one scrws up.
So I have never got round to it.
I was wondering whether a virtualised secondary domain controller is a good idea or a physical one?
