    Hi,

    Yes it's possible .You can promote the root domain on the first server , then promote a child domain on the second server.

    To ensure the high availability you should promote at least two domain controllers per domain.

    Hi @Eka Wahyu

    Have a read of this article to understand how to plan and design your domain controller placement.
