How to connect remote site to SBS domain network via VPN. RRS feed

  • Question

  • This site has a SBS2011, a SharePoint server and a few DB servers and app servers.
    We are moving to a new facility. The move will take a few phases - so some computers will be moved first but still need to access the domain network in the current site. The two sites can be connected via VPN without a problem.

    What should we do to make the computers in the new site still have access to the current site without interrupting server resources and app running?

    Any thoughts would be appreciated!

    Thanks,
    Jack

  • Hi,

    As there are VPN connected between two sites, on network level, both sites are on same network, so, make sure that necessary ports (such as AD and other services communication) are opened via VPN network. Then, move computers to new site, establish VPN to old site first, other services should be still working.
