@ardochhigh Yes, I was trying to say it was a duplicate of Can you help me with my capacity planning? Fundamentally, it seems like a server-sizing question.

comment New Domain controller only works when old one is online
Your problem is a DNS problem. DNS isn't working (or isn't working properly) on the new server, and that's why you have problems contacting the domain for anything when you turn the old, working, domain controller/DNS server off.

comment Is logging in as a shared user a bad habit?
While many people have trouble with poly-amorous relationships, others handle them just fine, so I don't think it's necessarily a "bad habit" to share a... oh, nevermind, you meant user account.

comment What kind of Server is needed to Handle 1 million requests per second
Why, you'd need a mega-rps server, of course. I don't see any listed in Amazon's catalog, but I do know from experience that one t2.nano AWS instance can be configured to handle at least 2 requests per second, so you'd need no more than 500,000 instances. Running for 2 hours per day, that would be 1 million hours at $0.0065, so this would cost you no more than $6,500 per day. Less than a cent per request! Sounds like a bargain to me.

comment Rejoining clients on my new DC with Same domain name and same Machine name as my old DC Server?
Yeah... this is very much not how you do a domain migration. Do it right, or don't do it at all.

comment Windows treats mapped drives differently based on host server type (Netware vs 2008R2), file create issues
DOS? Netware? Windows 98? WORKGROUPS?!?!? It was time to upgrade over a decade ago, and time to get rid of that workgroup garbage even before that. So, here's what you do... you take everything that's older than Windows 7, throw it off the roof into a pile in the parking lot, douse the pile in gasoline, and ignite it with a flare gun. Mapped drive problems, solved.

comment Remove Original Domain Windows 2003 with Secondary Domain and Exchange 2013
You... you... yeah, you really need to consult with an expert on this. Like @joeqwerty pointed out, the things you're saying aren't actually possible, and/or even your basic AD terminology is incorrect.

comment Is it a good a idea to create a fake raid 1 for guest on ESXi?
Fake RAID is never a good idea. There are many, far better ways to sabotage a system.

comment Error promoting 2012 R2 server to domain controller on 2003 domain
Any reason the functional level is still at 2003? It probably won't give you problems with MS support, but there's significant new functionality in newer functional levels.
