    thats what I thought. So i would need to have the p2p vpn in place in order to join the new site to the existing domain?

    But from what I can tell about the site to site vpn from the documentation @sukh suggested, it appears there needs to be a domain at either site already?

    or am i reading it wrong?

    You should be able to auth a site to site VPN with local accounts on PCs that are not DCs. I have not read the setup guide though.

    Here is another:

    nevermind got it.

    But it says Im gonna need 2 network cards each end. How is that gonna work when I just have one network at each end. I cant have 2 network cards each end.

    Is there another way to do it?

    Not sure if this is of any use to you RabbieBurns:

    High Availability Software | Disaster Recovery Planning Software | Double-Take Software

    http://www.visionsolutions.com/Products/DT-Move.aspx

    It's what we use for DR - our main office in Lon has an exchange server but just in case of a problem we can switch over to the exchange server in our NY office. We have a dedicated 50 meg link to the office just for replication. If we have to switch over all the clients need to do is re-boot their PC / E-mail device as when they next boot up the mail server changes will change automatically.
    We tested it last week any only had a few minor problems - the main one being the BES server needed a re-start.

    I havent managed to get the 2 sites linked properly yet. I need to spend some time doing that first. I was thinking of maybe putting an IPSEC enabled modem/router at each end to make it simpler rather than try to do it via software. I had openVPN working but I couldnt get it giving access both ways, only from one subnet could see the other but not vice versa.

    @FN-GM - are you trying to install the server on a remote site or on the same site as the previous?

    Just on the same site. I am thinking about giving more HA on our file server and exchange.

    Thanks

    Well for a start just install Exchange and all other hosts will see if. there is a very good article on MSExchange site around DAG (Database Availabity Groups) which will give your Exchange the HA you require. With regards to File Server HA you would probably need to look at DFS NameSpaces for HA on those.

    Yes been looking at DFS on the file servers for home areas.

    Something that seems to be a let down is the round robin. If one server is offline you won't get 100% connect ie DNS could point you to the wrong server.

    Thanks.

    Yeah true - ideally something would check to see if a host is alive before directing you there but nobody thinks before making these things!
