  • Hi Expert,

    I have 2 DC, with next configuration in network card

    DC1

    ip 10.0.0.5

    mask  255.255.0.0

    gw 10.0.0.1

    dns 1 10.0.0.5

    dns 2 10.0.0.10

    DC2

    ip 10.0.0.10

    gw 10.0.0.1

    dns 1 10.0.0.10

  • Generally I would put other DC first in list and own address as secondary and possibly loopback as third (127.0.0.1) but it will still be operational. Also unless there's a need for 16 bit mask I'd recommend setting a 24 bit mask.

  • It can work that way. However, I would advise to use the recommendations for IP settings mentioned here: https://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/18513.active-directory-replication-issues-basic-troubleshooting-steps-single-ad-domain-in-a-single-ad-forest.aspx
