Planned move of DC to new site

Here is my scenario :

Site A (10.0.1.0)
DC1 = 10.0.1.3 FSMO
DC3 = 10.0.1.2

Site B (10.0.2.0)
DC2 = 10.0.2.2

IPSEC VPN between the two sites.
I want to move DC1 to a new site (Site C 10.0.3.0) via another IPSEC VPN.
What steps do I need to take to keep DC1 as a Domain controller for the
existing domain but changing its IP to 10.0.3.3 at the new site. If possible
I'd rather not remove it then re-add it to the domain.

TIA, Gary D

Re: Planned move of DC to new site

Hello Gary,

Before moving start with running dcdiag, netdiag and replmon on ALL Dc's
to check for errors.

But if it is only for a really short time, move it, change the ip, configure
Active Directory Sites and Services, that the dc is moved to the other subnet
or create it. Reconfigure the NIC for DNS if necessary and run ipconfig /registerdns.
Then run dcdiag and netdiag on ALL Dc's to check for errors.

Also have a look here:

Re: Planned move of DC to new site

Thanks Meinolf, will check out the link !

DCDIAG repadmin etc all OK.etc,
Is it an option to:
Transfer FSMO roles to one of the other 2 DC's.
Remove A.D. from DC1
Set it up at new site and configure DNS etc.
Re-add A.D. to DC1 at new site

Thanks, Gary

Yes, but a lot of work. But if you think about a longer movetime, then i
would transfer/move the FSMO roles to a running machine, so you domain is
full running.
