Need some advice. I have a situation come up that I haven’t run into before. We have an office in Canada (our headquarters is in the U.S.) and due to unforeseen circumstances that office may have to relocate rather quickly. The offices are currently connected by a MPLS private line. Our DCs (2) over there are 2008R2, still on 2003 functional level (I know, not great). My question is, after they move, would it be best for them to not turn on the DCs until connectivity has been established to headquarters? Or will it be okay? (My mind wants to say it will be fine?) It may take a bit to move the private line (may be over a month), so I’m thinking we may be forced into a site-to-site VPN temporarily. I know it’s not good to not have replication for over a month. Usually we have time to plan these things better, this just came up all of a sudden. Usually when we have a branch office outage it’s not for an extended period of time, or there’s no power so the DCs are down anyway. Not used to deliberately using DCs with replication not being able to function due to no connectivity, or having an office relocate so quickly.
