Split AD from one forest

May 15th, 2012 2 comments

Today I tried to split two domain created in one AD forest.


I had 1st created domain domain.local which was top-forest root domain. It contained two domain controllers (SRVDC01.domain.local (W2008R2) and SRVDC02.domain.local(WS8)). Second domain I’ve created was domain2.local which was in same AD forest, but in different AD tree. I had little problem when creating new domain domain2.local, because SRVDC02.domain.local was powered off for couple days. DCPromo on SRVXX01.domain2.local was complaining about some replication problems. So I needed to power it on and force replication. It was weird, because SRVDC2.domain.local haven’t hold any of FSMO roles. When it was all done, all looked up and running.

WMI je skratka od Windows Management Instrumentation, čo predstavuje rozhranie cez ktoré je možné tak vyčítať rôzne údaje z OS ako aj samotné nastavenia OS meniť. WMI si predstavte ako databázu na každom Windows OS. Pomocou podobných príkazov ako sú SQL príkazy je možné vyčítavať rôzne informácie. Napríklad je možné vyčitať informácie o type a modele BIOSu na počítači. Ďalej napríklad informácie o veľkosti RAM pamäte, verzia OS, zoznam hotfixov, rýchlosť otáčok ventilátora na CPU,…
