  • Hello,

    I don't see a problem with your FQDN length. You can create your new domain without problems.

    Note that it is recommended to have at least two DC/DNS/GC servers per domain.

    Note: There is no need to create multiple threads for the same problem in the same forum.

  • The maximum FQDN length is 64 characters & you are using 20 character & its perfectly ok.

    Arvind,

    We would like to help you but you really should seek private consultation if you need a step-by-step with confidence and discretion of the actual implementation. You should not be communicating intimate Domain Controller setup details as you "go along" in setting up your infrastructure, for security reasons.

  • Your FQDN should be fine.  What do you mean by “I am going to install active directory in a Corporate Server” ?

    Are you creating a new forest or child domain?
