Server question - 2 DC's on same network

Hi all

i know this is not related to win7, but i just wanna know if i can have 2 Domain Controllers with different names, on the same network without they know each other on the network ?


like a test system ?

we have our running DC1 - and i want to add another DCT with another name for Test.
but on the same network so i can use our RDS on DC1 to connect to DCT ?

I believe so. I thought, with Server 2008 and up, there's no such thing as a PDC (Primary Domain Controller) anymore. I have two servers on my corporate network that act as DCs....both running Active Directory. I was told this was a good idea, in case one server goes down, the other handles AD roles. AD is replicated between the two.

yeah but since the 2nd is just for test and play, it must not has any roles at all...

is there a forum like this just for Server topics?
