This question already has an answer here:
I have a server 2012 with a AD setup with domain.local setup. I would like to add exchange to our new server 2012 just added. our current setup:
1 server 2012 domain setup domain.local with AD 1 server 2012 (new) would like to add exchange on. hosted emails(name.net), and website from godaddy (website name.net)
I would like to setup an exchange server to get away from godaddy emails. but leave the website there for now.
Should i rename my domain.local to .net?
Any help from experts on what they would do would be appreciated.
