Hi, Sorry for the newbie question, but i need some help.
Id like to create a full test environment, fully isolated from PROD.
Ive looked around and seen things for Labs, SureBackup, Replicas, DR etc, but im not sure how to do this.
So i thought Id ask for some pointers here.
One domain and one child domain (root.site & child.root.site)
All user accounts are in child.root.site domain.
I want to create a Test Environment for our Payroll and Finance Applications (MS SQL Servers, Application Servers, Workstations for Access to Apps)
And obviously Active Directory as the Apps are all AD Authenticated.
As we are dealing with Core Financial Apps, this Test Environment needs to be completely isolated from PROD so there is no possibility of accidental postings to live.
Is there simple how-to's somewhere to be able to create this sort of environment?
Whats some of the gotcha's in this to get it to work?
Ive read often about AD being in DSRM and unable to authenticate as being a problem.
thanks for anyones help...
