I am having root domain. [ site1 / Windows 2003 ]
Also having child domain. [ site 2 / Windows 2003 ]
Goal :- Discard child domain and extend root domain in another site where child domain exists.
Question:- Is it possible to install additional DC + DNS in another site [ where already child domain exists ] without changing anything? [ I am considering that I need to join existing desktop's,laptop's to root domain. ]
At site where Schema master resides have 193.168.x range
Child domain site has 192.168.1.x range subnet
Both sites as of already connected by IPSec VPN.

To add another DC in another site, it is possible and I would like suggest you refer to the below article for more details about how to do this:
