hi , i have a situation, would like to ask for opinion:
currently i have one Domain Controller (DC1) with domain as : aaa.com .
I created another DC2 with domain : bbb.com . Now i would like to change
domain name of DC2 to aaa.com and join with DC1 , as a additional domain
controller also . So may I know whether:
1. I should do dcpromo to demote DC2 and reinstall as additonal DC in
domain aaa.com ?
2. Or can I rename domain name directly by using support tool and join
aaa.com as an additional DC ?
Then in case (1) , do I need to config 2 DC as primary and secondary
model .
As i am going to merge to DC1 domain aaa.com , so there are many thing
I need to know first.

Thanks
